That of course is correct. And the devs definitely are trying to please
(well, almost) anyone. :)

I use Evo as my mail client every single day
and mostly it works well, but basically because I'm used to it. There
are still things that drive me insane, e.g. the lack of an Undo for
message deletion.

There are some peculiarities in any app the user has to get used to.
You'll find this all the time when switching from a well known appliance
to a replacement. Heck, this even holds true for simple things like
coffee machines... ;)

Regarding your undo feature: I know this is a long standing request in
bugzilla. But interestingly, I (personally) never ever wished for such a
thing. Since I have "deleted" mail visible [1], undoing this is like one
click or keyboard shortcut away for me.  (Also, this does not break
threading or make sub-threads dance around, when starting deletion with
the parent...)
