Hi Aaron-

Thanks for the response.  Unfortunately Yahoo Mail, which I use as my
primary eamil address, uses POP.  I know you might ask then why I'm leaving
a copy on the server if it's a POP account.  Well the answer is that I check
my mail in three places, work, home Linux and home Windows so I prefer to
download the mail to the home Windows account.  It would be great if Yahoo
supported IMAP.

Oh well, I guess I'll have to either consider using evolution as my primary
email app or use Mozilla mail instead (or petiton Yahoo for IMAP).

Thanks again,

  No, I'm afraid it won't. The short response is "that's what IMAP (and IMAP
caching) is for." The long response is almost the same: basically, there's
not that much benefit in abusing the POP protocol to make it work like IMAP,
when we already have IMAP. That feature, in other words, exists with a
different name.

  That is, however, a good item for the design-decisions whitepaper I'm
working on, tentatively titled "Why Did You Do it That Way?"

  Does anyone else on the Evolve list have any other suggestions-- design
decisions that are often questioned?

  Right now I have:

  Why don't vFolders update when I'm not looking at them? (Performance
  Why does my text-based email appear to be laid out in HTML? (So you can
switch between HTML and text easily)
  Why don't you have the "Delete from POP server after deleted locally"
feature? (See above).

  and a couple of others I can't remember off the top of my head.

    I apologize, as I'm sure that this has been asked several times, but I
    couldn't really find anything in the archives. I know this feature
    isn't available on 1.0.8, but will it be included in a future release?

    Thanks a lot,
