Of course, I'm back on a Ubuntu system
Version info could be helpful. Either Ubuntu replaced the string by
something else, or the main application menu is hidden.

Probably the later, Ubuntu likes to hack Gtk to force weird behavior.  

Perhaps maybe the Help/About is available in the "App" menu in the GNOME
top-bar when Evolution is selected. 

Exactly.  In the Mac-like "global menu," which IMHO is a terrible
design error but easily rectified with the unity-tweak-tool to give
normal application menus (in versions 14.04 and later).  The OP should
indeed look in the top bar.

Beats me, I don't now [this is just another thing Ubuntu breaks].

Copying Apple *always* breaks stuff.

Convergence is interesting though.  Eagerly awaiting an Ubuntu tablet
here so I can get a *real* MUA on an easy-to-carry platform with an
interface I already know and (more or less) love.
