But that message won't forward a copy of itself to everyone in your
addressbook and in your corporate LDAP server.

Why are you even bothering to try to argue about this?! It's not like
this is unexplored territory and no one knows what will happen if we
try. You are proposing to give Evolution *exactly* the functionality
that has made Outlook as grotesquely insecure as it is. The warning
message in your wrapper program is even similar to the demonstrated-
to-be-absolutely-useless warning that Outlook gives in this case.

You have exactly missed my point. I'm claiming that it is (in the
general case) just as "secure" with the warning as it is without, so if
you don't feel comfortable shipping it without the warning, you
shouldn't feel comfortable shipping it with either.
