Mainly, evol. doesn't show every mail correctly regarding character
enconding.. Some mail looks like this..:

Hva som skal st=?ISO-8859-1?B?5Q==?=
I mail som sendes u

Why isn't this shown like this ??:

Subject: Hva som skal stå I mail som sendes u

This works like charm with both thunderbird and also kmail.
This is a broken encoding.  I guess the must have workarounds.  rfc2047 is _very explicit_ about the fact you must separate encoded words with linear whitespace being a MUST implementation detail.

File a bug against the mailers who are sending the mail.

Although evolution might have another workaround for another set of broken emailers out there, we're in no rush to do it, since its their issue, not ours.  And nobody's submitted a patch.

Second, why isn't there an option that make it possible to enable "hard"
delete of mail instead of delete and then have to press Ctrl-E to
expunge the mail. This should be a small task to implement, the code is
already there, just combine it... :)

And also, when using IMAP, why isn't the seen flag marked when I have
read the email? I have to eg. go to another folder en back again to make
sure the mail is marked as read..
Do you mean on the server?  It isn't synced till you expunge or change folders.

I must say that I really like Evolution and I like the look of the new
2.0 version but until these things are fixed, thunderbird is my game...
Well, everyone will have their preference I guess.
