Re: [Evolution] Save all attachments problem

Or just hide it if there are no attachments, instead of taking up real
estate to say "No Attachment".

Could add a hidden environmental variable to turn it off, that's a
non-intrusive way to disable things like this.

Another hacky way to control it would be to add another psuedo-header to
the 'headers to display list', and only display it if that is set.  So
you can still control it through the ui, yet it is more or less hidden
to most users.  A new string is required though.

all you can do now is file bugs (I actually filed one about it taking up
a lot of space) and hope that they get resolved in time for 2.4

everything about the new attachment ui rubs me the wrong way


You'd think the UI team could adopt a simple new guideline, that new
features are not to waste screen real estate if they don't do anything
in a given context.  Seems like users always consider it a bug.  This
guideline for example would have prevented the always-visible attachment
bar bug and this one.
