Re: [Evolution] default mail address


I may be remembering wrongly about 1.08. I converted to the 1.2 beta
recently, and it acts like you describe - even if only one match exists,
you still have to select it from a menu, at least for local address
book.  I'll check with LDAP and with an exchange address list when I get
a minute.  Reverting to 1.08 is not something I will do lightly.

Using Evolution 1.0.8 I don't see the auto-complete
working the way Paul H. describes it.  Using the contacts
list and typing a partial address, even if only one match
exists, I still have to mouse-down and select it.

Is there a way to have it use the match if it's the only one?

In the way you mean, my understanding is that, no it doesn't and won't
do it.  There was a discussion on this topic a few months ago, which
pointed out that the standards require fully qualified email addresses
and that this feature is a departure from those standards.  It was
entered as an enhancement request, but I'm not sure what it's status is.

The workaround is to use the contacts list - then when you type in
partial address, you will get a menu of choices which match, or if only
one match exists, it will just use it.

If anyone else out there has a better memory of that discussion, please
correct any errors I've made.

I'm new to evolution so please be kind.  Is there a way to setup a default 
mail domain address within Evolution?  This way all I need to type in is 
the login name of the user I'm sending e-mail to. Once I hit  the tab key, 
then the default mail domain would be added to the login name 
automatically.  Right now I've been typing in the full dns qualified 
address. But other mail clients like Eudora, Mulberry, etc support a 
default mail address. In mulberry, the field is called "Default domain for 
outgoing mail".

Any ideas?
