Re: [Evolution] Evaluating Evolution- some basic questions

Can't help with the first part of your question. I never "open" emails the way it sounds like you do. I just 
read them in the preview pane. In that sense, I never "leave" the inbox.

As to the other part, I don't know why you are getting a *single* hypen above your signature. A double hyphen 
by itself on the first line of your signature is a standard that an email client can use to strip the 
signature from replies. Compliant clients add that to the signature. I don't know if that is what you are 
seeing as I am on my phone and not near evo right now to confirm.

Subject: [Evolution] Evaluating Evolution- some basic questions


I'm new to the list and well as to evolution.  I've been an Outlook user for years but have finally expunged 
windows from my home computers.  I also have some workplace interest in the application.  

Trying to "fine-tune" my evolution environment and, for once, google wasn't able to help me.  There are a 
couple very annoying things I'm trying to change that I can't seem to.  

First, when I read a message and click the delete button at the top of the message, I am immediately taken to 
the next message.  I absolutely hate this and simply want the message to close so I can again view the inbox 
or whatever folder I am viewing at that time.  How can I modify this?  

Second, note the one hyphen in my signature above the longer series below?  I can't get rid of that "hovering 
hyphen."  I've edited my signature, of course, but that hovering hyphen doesn't appear there.  How can I get 
rid of that?  

I'm also interested in evaluating Evolution as an alternative to Outlook for my workplace.  We currently use 
Outlook and Exchange but with the next round of PCs we buy I want to NOT buy MS Office and install 
OpenOffice.  Of course, I still need an exchange client.  Where can I find some detailed documentation on 
using Evolution in conjunction with Exchange?  

Thanks for any help or replies.
