RE: [Evolution] Re: mail options

I think the biggest thing is that setting those flags means nothing.
I choose not to view the "flag" setting and I turn down return reciept on a permanent basis. You might find 
it important to set the flags but there is no mechanism whatsoever that guarantees that the user honors them. 
So in a way, they are tricking You into believing that You can create a sense of urgensy by using them...but 
You can't.
As always..if it's urgent: Call.

Does somebody know how to set these options?

These are evil features, because:
 * A high priority for you might be low priority or even spam for me
 * Return receipts, as discussed many times before, are immoral

Once upon a time the Evolution team was swearing that
Ok, thank you, now I know because these features are missing.

So long as someone does nothing against the laws you should let him decide by himself what is moral or not, 
you are not the pope and we are no catechumens; paternalism produces bad software (and yes, I am immoral 
:D!). It is not proprietary crap when you want to grab someone by his b****cks which left you in the lurch.

This time I used thunderbird to set these flags and I am glad that they will be implemented soon in evolution
