Assumed the OP wants to use IMAP.

I prefer to use Evolution with it's integrated POP/SMPT support and I
hope the Evolution developers some day will seriously care about
POP/SMPT and remove all the annoyances. In worst cases I use an editor
and sent mails with msmtp. It's possible to use msmtp with Evolution
instead of Evolution's thingy, but I don't do that.

[rocketmouse archlinux ~]$ ls -hAl /usr/bin/sendmail 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 5 Mar 18 05:22 /usr/bin/sendmail -> msmtp
[rocketmouse archlinux ~]$ cat .msmtprc
# Set default values for all following accounts.
tls_trust_file /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
logfile ~/.msmtp.log

Writing a mails with an editor does look like this:

        To: evolution-list gnome org
        From: ralf mardorf alice-dsl net
        Subject:Re: [Evolution] Many mails never reach the recipients - Evolution 3.10.4
        In-Reply-To: <1392956909 682 141 camel archlinux>
        Currently I write mails with an editor and send mails, e.g. this
        one by
        $ cat .msmtp.mail/evolution.reply.1.mail | msmtp -a default evolution-list gnome org

If I reply to a mailing list mail I received using Evolution, I take a
look at the mail's header to copy the "In-Reply-To" line, but for other
mails the header only needs "To", "From" and "Subject".
