That's a useful idea -- it would certainly help me, as an experienced
user who spends most of the day in front of an email client (which for
the last couple of weeks has been Evolution) and really wants the common
tasks to be quick and easy. A configuration option would be preferable
-- but a kayboard shortcut would be better than nothing. 

I speak only for myself here though -- the keyboard shortcut option
wouldn't help if I were considering the deployment of Evolution
company-wide. If I were still living that previous life, I'd really have
insisted on having the cursor at the bottom by _default_ (at least per
site-wide configuration) in that situation. Much larting of my users for
Netiquette violation, by myself and others, could thereby be avoided. 

Right. What stopped the deployment of Evo was the immediate violation of corporate standards, and the difficulty it involve to make the client behave in the appropriate way. The company's documentation guidelines strictly state that memos (which include email) are to be a stack, with the newest commentary on top. This way, the results can be seen without having to page through the message.
