if you can come up with an algorithm that will work for this, then sure.
But you should read the archives from a week or 2 ago to see why this is
not so easy.

I've been out of work, vacations at last, and I deleted most of the
thousands of mails I had as a backlog.

Anyway, I understand the difficulty. I'll check the archives to get
synced with this...

- color by filters: Display messages in the index page with different

You can make filters set a message's colour. I don't get what you're
wanting here?

You are right (of course), I haven't checked the filters menu well enough.
But, how do I apply filters (CTRL+Y) to all messages? Do I have to
select them all? Can't this be done automagically to all (arriving)
messages? Can't I change the line background as well as foreground?
Am I asking too much?

Ok, I didn't knew, haven't used evolution for a while now, thought it was
a "feature" :)).

- view mail on same window: What about viewing mail in the index window?
    That would make evolution a much more keyboard friendly app;

Huh? this is the default.

No. If you press [ENTER] in a message it opens in a new windows, not over
the index view. But this is not really that important.

- global configs (view threaded, column sizes) and display settings:
    I noticed that some settings, threaded view, the size of the fields
    in the index view, can only be changed in a folder/mailbox basis,
    this is annoying as I have more than 200 local mailboxes and I would
    like to change their setting in a global way;

column sizes can be set globally by changing them in one and then going
to View->Current View and defining your own view or something. Hmmm, I
can't remember how to do it now. Basically, I remember just changing the
sizes in the default view and saving that over the "Messages" view which
made all other folders change too.

Right. Now I know how to do it. Nice.

One more thing, is the font in the message (index) display customizable?

Thanks Jeff. I'm one step closer to using evolution :)
