1. If I click on the same message 10 times, I get 10 windows with that
message on it.  On a crowded screen, it's often more useful to get to
any window you opened simply by clicking on the message again.

      Actually, that's a very good idea.  Opening a message window twice with
the same email should just raise the first message window to the top. 
You should file a bug about this at:

and maybe someone will add that.

2. When reading messages, I find that I can't select and cut/copy text. 
REALLY limiting, when you're trying to cut-and-paste from an email
message into something else.

      Actually, this has been made clearer in the new version of Evolution. 
But cut and paste works already -- just using the UNIX style of cut and
paste, not the Windows style.  To "copy" some text, simply select it. 
That'll add it to the clipboard.  To paste, simply click the middle
mouse button.  If you don't have a middle mouse button, click the left
and the right mouse buttons at the same time.  

That doesn't work with, for example, Mozilla.  I was trying to create a
bugzilla report as you suggested above, and I couldn't cut/past text
into Mozilla.

3. How can I delete a message and have it move into a trash folder, as
opposed to simply leaving it in the inbox with a line drawn thru it? 
That just leaves the thing cluttered.  I know all about expunging
messages, but that's not what I want (at least, it's not a total

      Your deleted messages show up in the trash now already.
