Thanks for your interesting feedback !
My answer goes to you and the Ubuntu Users too !!
My complaints didn't go into the direction of how Evolution filters
The complaint goes to simple moving e-mails from INbox to their
definitive folder locations !!!
Explanations & Sample:
Without these ugly disturbing "eS Pe A eM's more than 100 e-mails
almost every day,
from private and ITC contacts, i.e. mailing lists like the one from
Getting these e-mails I do it with 2 step:
Private e-mails and ITC info and news come straigtaway to my INbox !
All other accounts with high volumes do need manual PWD's to control
their arriving !!
After checking & reading some go stored in their final folders and the
rest goes deleted !!!
Now it comes what I complain about:
After all these checkings, readings all e-mails are in their places and
the INbox is empty.
ALL of these e-mails NOT deleted but moved to their final folder
location are in TRASH too :-O
That's very ugly and makes control very difficult and more complicated
than neccessary !!! ;-(((
I am used to famous Lotus Notes:
Moving e-mails directly into their respective folder location doesn't
leave a spur in TRASH !!!
Eeased and deleted e-mails ONLY are in TRASH !!!
That's the way I expected it !!
One more point comes up:
Replying with Lotus Notes places the answer not only in SENT !
It is also placed there, where one answers from !!
I answer to you and the Ubuntu Users from the INbox straightaway ...
... so I will have your incoming and my outgoing message in the
... plus the one in SENT !!!
This solution is very cool and efficient:
Knowing to whom I wrote I check directly the respective folder !
Like this I do have the whole communication, incoming and outgoing in
one spot !!
Not like ARROW'ed mails showing that they are answered and one has to
search further !!! ;-|
Searching for "Evolution's crazy habit ..." messages written to some
... I check under SENT !!
Well, the application offers search assistance too but luckily I know
what I am looking for and do need these application searches very
rarely ! ;-)
So, I better stop here !
Please excuse me for my longwinded "Swiss German English" !!
I hope you understand what I mean and wrote !!! ;-D
