Thank you, I'll give that a try.

And don't people find this in the least worrying? A good email client
is no longer optional nowadays, and AFAIU RHEL5 will ship soon. They
can't possibly ship Evolution in this state.
Email is by far and away the most important tool in a business
environment, and it's not an easy proposition to transition folks
to a new one. You need something that works. If it crashes, for
most people is equivalent to the entire system crashing, as they'll
need to reboot the box to fix the problem. This renders the system
worse than Windows 3.1.
If you really want to tick people off, mess with their email. I'd
be _very_ concerned right about now if I were RHEL5 product manager.
