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.

And should be a thousand times until someone understands that some of us
want flexibility(configurability).

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.

What does this mean? You can have an addressbook for each account. The
addresses I have are not common to each account (configurability?).

it means that there is no way to associate an account with an
addressbook or vise versa.

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.

This may work for you but not for me. Why do you care what my motives
for wanting something. I don't want to forward email as an attachment I
want it inline and If the email source is displayed and I want to
forward it then why shouldn't I be able to do this? Example: I get some
spam and know who the originating ISP is so I want to send forward an
email to them requesting they remedy the situation and the proof is the
email source.

Forward as Attachment is the preferred method, trust me. Then the ISP
gets the raw message in a nice friendly MIME structure which will
preserve wrapping (which will not happen if you forward it inline).
