Hello everybody,

a few weeks ago I moved from kdepim to evolution 3.10.4, based on a
unity-14.04 ubuntu.

Up to now, I'm quite happy with that choice - allthough kdepim has 
features and may be a little more configurable, buggy akonadi in the
background drives me crazy.

A few questions remain which I couldn't google successfully. Main

This is the third time you've posted the same message. Not the way to

These are my issues:

1. How can I configure/modify keyboard shortcuts?

Does it work with gnome only, not with unity?

The list archives have multiple posts on this.

2. How can I keyboard navigate between the folders and the messages

edit its contents, just change the search criteria.

4. Normally I'm using plain text. Occasionally, I see text unwrapped, 
couldnt figure out for what reasons. There must be a button or 
"force wrap ever". I found some hints in the web, but I couldnt get 

Ralf has answered this.

5. Regularly, after sleep&rewake of my system, evolution neither can
send nor receive messages from my ""-Account. Quit and 
solves it normally, but often I only can force quit evo. When 
evo from the console, I dont see any errors. How can I track this 

Is the padlock icon (lower left corner of the main Evo windows) open or
closed. Open means Evo thinks you are disconnected. Click to go online.
Aside from that, could be a version bug.
