Yea, and we can also do without e-mail altogether and just use the

And, there's a very real and legitimate reason to ask for a return
receipt. It's not an invasion of privacy.
Unless Ximian implements some features that aren't important to Ximian
but are important to its users, evo will be relegated to "toy" status.
I'm currently struggling to remain with my current distro of SuSE+Ximian
in my business, but the lack of meaningful support in both components is
forcing my hand to look around for another solution.
For me Evo - I'm still on 1.4 - has oodles of reasons for making me
stick to it like glue. They're to many to roll out, but a couple would
be the LDAP implementation, the spelling implementation, the
comprehensive range of mail authorization possibilities, native language
(for me Norwegian BokmÃl), the range of integration ... reply receipts
is *not* one of them - they make me burn up when I get them in
Thunderbird (in which I'm writing this). My clients love it - as a prof
mailadmin I have to make sure that a range of MUAs are available and
most clients choose for Evo, if they're offered it.
If the only difference to Evo being a toy and not a toy is reply
receipts, then it's a pretty juvenile toy ;)
We make out of the quarrel with others rhetoric
but out of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry.
