I have been using pine for a while and decided to switch to Evolution. I
like Evolution but it has some problems. So, what follows is a list of
what I think needs to be added or changed:

1. I have added several users to manage different mailing lists. So if I
have one of these accounts selected and click new message then the
'From:' should be the address of the current folder selected.

this has been requested before.

2. If I have an account selected in the 'Folder' bar an address book
relating specifically to that account should be available.

hmm, but no such relationship exists.

3. If I click 'Reply', 'Reply to All', or 'Forward' then what should be
forwarded is what is displayed. i.e. If I have selected View->Message
Display->Show Email Source and the full email source is displayed then
that is what should be should be 'Replied' or 'Forwarded'.

forward should use an attachment.  this hasbee4n debated to death.

replying, generally people do not want the headers, only the meaningful
content (e.g. why would you reply to a mime message and include all
encoded images and multiple parts, quoted, in an unusable form?  that
would be nuts).  thats w3hat forward is for, to retain the full
structure and content of the original.

4. If I have selected a message for deletion, which is also my current
selection, then maybe the 'deletion' icon on the toolbar should then
become an 'undeletion' icon.

i agree with this, but its not my decision :-/

5. If I am reading a message it would be nice to have some sort of
context menu with all available options, pertaining to open messages,
with a right click anywhere on the message.

did you try right clicking anywhere on the message?
i can't recall, perhaps in 1.0.8 it only works in the message list, in
1.2 it works anywhere.

Thanks all,
