Change the accel attribute to suite your needs and keyboard.

OK, I got this to work after several tries.

Great. :)

The syntax for the accel
value is not entirely obvious: I finally settled on Ctrl+Alt+P but when
I tried setting *Control*Alt*p (by analogy with *Control*Alt*s which is
used for "Save As ...") it didn't work. However it did work with
*Control**Alt*p. Is this a feature?

No, a bug. :-/

$ grep Control *.xml | grep Alt | tail -2
evolution-comp-editor.xml:        accel="*Control*Alt*s"
evolution-mail-message.xml:     accel="*Control**Alt*s"

$ egrep "\*Control\*\*(Alt|Shift)\*" *.xml | wc -l
$ egrep "\*Control\*(Alt|Shift)\*" *.xml | wc -l

Unlucky you used the only buggy accelerator setting as sample. That
particular one doesn't even work. Each modifier needs to be surrounded
by asterisks, so *Control**Alt*p is correct.

I suspected as much, just didn't like to shout BUG without checking.
