So, here is the essence of their ideas/concerns regarding Evolution: [1.1] Default Icon View - Just presenting the icons representing the individual folders (tagged with their name and the number of unread messages enclosed in parentheses) of _one_ mailbox to the user and make the different mailboxes accessible by a drop-down box. This view is quite similar to the one provided by Apple.Mail.
it would just take two clicks instead of one to get to a folder if that folder is not in the same account, and i myself don't like that thought. anyway, perhaps i just don't use nautilus often enough... :-)
Once the user is familiar with file-browsing, she/he will be able to read/manage her/his mail in quite the same way. Furthermore it might be useful to make the folder-view collapsable as most (non-geek:-)) users maintain just one inbox. Collapsing the view saves screen estate.
hmm... i don't get this, what is *not* collapsible currently, what are you missing? [message list pane:]
One interesting idea was the ability to display a small popup on mouse-over containing the first few lines of a message (of course it should be possible to switch this feature off).
if i remember correctly, this feature has been already requested in http://bugzilla.gnome.org . i second this, would be pretty nice. cheers, andre -- mailto:ak-47 gmx net | failed! http://www.iomc.de
