Re: [Evolution] Problem with reply and other stuff (OT)

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.  

I don't understand -- maybe it's just your gratuitous use of HTML making
your message appear differently to everything else that doesn't land in
the spam bin, and hence causing my limited brain to have difficulty
understanding it.

 That's a bit unfair, isn't it? I worked for a firm like that not too
long ago, where corporate policy decreed html e-mail, separate fonts for
this and that, style templates, firm logos all over the place in the
text, an idiotic, meaningless mission statement in crappy Dutch English
and goodness knows what else. Everything based on Outlook and Windows
(apart from my Linux laptop). Needless to say, the firm went bankrupt
(3,000 employees no less).
