Re: [Evolution] Comments and questions on the Evolution mailer

2. Changing time format in the message list area to 24 hour format,
without changing the LOCALE. I have not not found out how to do this yet
and it is _very_ annoying to use the AM/PM format.
no, you will need to change the locale/lang or at least LC_TIME
variable (i presume). 

Yep. For way more details, please see an earlier post by me discussing
this topic:

3. Sort and find unread mails. Moving to next unread mail seems to be
possible with . and ], but I have not found an meny entry. Furthermore,

Tried looking in the view->goto menu? 

how to sort mails so that the unread mails are last or first in the
message list area. Sorting in cronological order is made impossible with
the default way of showing the date/time of messages. At least it does
not result in the correct sorting order...

I don't see, how "the default way of showing the date" affects this. The
LC_TIME locale variable affects displaying only. Sorting is the very
same -- and works.

You can sort mails (threads) by date by clicking on the "Date" column
header. If you really need the mails sorted in chronological order
rather than threads, be sure to disable View / Threaded Message List.

Try clicking on the message status icon column.  Or doing a complex
sort via a custom view. 

4. Replying without including the message text (except to remove all
text manually)

If there is some text selected in the mail when replying, the selected
text is quoted only.

File a feature request I guess.  That isn't a reply anyway, since
reply implies you have content to reply to. 

Well, it threads nicely. So I personally would say yes, this is replying
even without any quote. :)  Either way, it helps keeping track at least,
if the topic still is the same.

5. Replying and being able to select to include/not to include

Not possible. 

You can drag-n-drop attachments without saving them, if it helps...

7. FAQ: When clicking on the FAQ you are forwarded to which is
_not_ an FAQ, only a brief feature description of Evolution...

Oh well.   The whole ximian site is deprecated, it sounds like you're
starting from the wrong spot.  Try and looking for
the evolution project.

This is the new official Evolution home:

Unfortunately there isn't an FAQ (yet) either. But I will provide a
comprehensive FAQ, once I got the time.
