Recently, I posted a message regarding a very useful feature which seems to have been removed from the
current version of evolution. It was in the version that shipped with Redhat version 9.
That feature was used when you had one or more new message or reply-to message windows up (I often edit a
bunch of messages and leave them up while I gather info for them or just contemplate what I want to say
before I send them), if, for whatever reason, evolution crashed or had to be forcably killed due to a UI
lock-up or a system reboot, upon re-starting Evolution and attempting to either reply to a message or create
a new message, a dialog would appear informing you that Evolution detected unsaved messages and asked it you
wanted it to attempt to recover those messages for you. If you replied in the affirmative, it would recreate
all of those lost messages and open each in its own window ... and then create the new/reply message that you
had originally requested as well. I cannot tell you how many times this feature saved my sanity and countless
hours of my time!!!!!
Could someone on the development team or product managment team tell me if I can hope to see this feature
back in an upcoming version of evolution? Was it removed for a reason or was I dreaming and this was never an
intended feature in this product?
Thank you in advance,
Senior Software Engineer
