Re: [Evolution] How to annotate a received e-mail?

It's been mentioned three times in the five months I've been on this
list, but has been shot down by the developers because it is apparently
a Bad Thing to modify the original email.  It's been mentioned even more
times if you count being able to delete attachments.

However several email clients do this, and I haven't seen mention of
what exactly would break if evolution would do it.  The sense I get is
that nothing would break, they're just trying to stick to a strict
RFC-type correlation between message id and original email.  ("If you
modify the email, it needs a new message id.")

Unfortunately there's no way to search the archives, so I don't know the
details of the original argument against modifying emails.  Could a
knowledgeable person summarize the argument against doing it?

Back in my days of using MH for mail ("the good old days" :-), one of my
habits was to annotate a mail asking me a question with a dated note
about what I'd done about it or what I was waiting on to be able to
close out the item.    It was easy with vi to just jot a note in []'s at
the end of the message.    I'd typically start it with the date and end
it with my initials.    Is there a way in Evolution to add annotations
to my copy of a received e-mail in its folder?
