Re: [Evolution] About "hide read messages"

Well, use the [] keys, and/or setup an unread vfolder.  That will do what you're after.

What i meant earlier when i said 'thats not what you want anyway' is this: you click on a message, it gets set read, the folder auto-updates and removes the read message, so it goes to the next message, it gets read automatically, the folder auto-updates and removes the read message, etc.

All our code is done through several levels of view model controller, so to make things like this 'work' is impractical at the code level.  Vfolders get around that by only updating when you switch folders.

Not so much screen size as just a purely personal preference. Mostly I
don't care about the earlier posts -- I've already read them. With
threading on, new messages to different threads show up scattered in the
subject pane. I'd just rather not have to scroll through 80 read
messages to find the two or three new ones. Having them grouped together
is simply easier (down arrow reads each one).

I could, of course group new messages by just turning off threading, but
threading is far too useful to turn off.
