i don't get the point here. what *exactly* are you used to, what are you
I want to write one ore more emailaddresses per keyboard. One is
possible in evolution but not more than one.

I too am not sure what your point is - I never use the address book to
fill the "To:" field, but I manage to get lots of addresses in there.
All I do is type
   x y com, b z com, a w com

Perhaps you are talking about the thunderbird way that after you type in
an address you press 'return' and another "To:" line appears underneath?
To me that is a totally counter-intuitive way of doing things - in email
all the "To:" recipients appear in one line, not on multiple lines.

Ah, but this is my biggest complaint against Evolution. I want to reply to a message and the person is in the CC instead of the To: Now I have to copy and paste and delete and do the same for the person that ends up in the To instead of the CC line and ... It just goes on.

I also like the complete email address as I have multiple addresses for some people that I use at different times. I don't want to see just their names with the auto complete.

I for one prefer the Thunderbird way of doing the addresses. It allows me to filter and weed things much quicker than trying to read all the addresses on one line that sometimes can include more addresses than will show up in one line.

The one real benefit is if I am composing to multiple people, I don't have to think of who will be To:, CC: or Bcc: when I type in the addresses. With Evolution I have to do all this at the beginning and in some cases I either miss place someone or I forget them. It takes so much time. In fact I could deal with all my mail in a few hours in Thunderbird but I have an issue getting through my mail in a day with Evolution. Much of it is due to Evolution Connector though.
