All right, explaining a bit diffecult. Currently (AFAIK) all VFolders
are stored under $HOME/evolution/local. Howeveri would like to be able
to store such a VFolder anywhere on my filesystems like a folder
$HOME/Gnome/Mailinglist, where i store all mails of the gnome mailing
list. When using Nautilus (in the future) i would like to be able to
open the VFolder AS a VFolder, not as a normal folder like what happens
now. To be short, i would like not to have to start the whole of
evolution when all i want is to look for a certain email from the gnome
mailinglist.  Same story goes for Contacts VFolders

Is this any clearer ;-))?????

As you are overworked, how can one contribute? Or isn't this possible as
it is developed my HelixCode?
