Furthermore, I would like to be able to edit the toolbar buttons.  At

Yes, that would be nice.  I just want to remove the *(&@*(* # Junk

Hey, what happen to the old style shortcuts like the ximian gnome
evolution? and what happened to the start screen with number of
messages, task, and weather?

I recall much debate about the removal of that feature;  it was dropped
a very long time ago (2.0?).

Q: What happened to the Summary in Evolution 2.0?
A: The user interface was redesigned in Evolution 2.0 and the Summary
was removed from the product. 
Q: Where is the Shortcut bar in Evolution 2.0?
A: The user interface was redesigned in Evolution 2.0 and the shortcut
bar was removed. 

The above is from
<> which answers
the question but is itself scandalously out of date.

It seems Evolution in Ubuntu Hardy and Jaunty has been stripped of these
old features or in each new version they do away with something else.
I wish Evolution was the way it was...

I don't wish that;  Evolution is much more stable now than it was then.

I am stuck in evolution 2.12 because that is the latest version
distributed with RedHat EL5.  In that version, the setup of these
buttons is in /usr/share/evolution/2.12/ui/evolution-mail-message.xml.
I was able to delete the junk button and make other changes--it is
sort of intuitive if you read the file carefully (and I know
nothing about xml except what I see there).  I suggest you play
with it and try to get the effects you want.  Of course, if you
have a different version of evolution, this file may have been
moved (try changing the "2.12" in the path name above to the
version you have).
Hope it works for you,
George Reeke
