The all in accounts for multiple mail clumped in one inbox distracted me 
from Evolution myself. If they changed the mailer to multithreading, 
like mozilla/thunderbird, it wouldn't be Outlook-like, but it would be a 
more desirable mail program.
Not to mention the problem with evo having the default email composed 
for mail from each of the multiple accounts, instead of mail from acct a 
being composed w/ acct a address and like for other accounts.

It would save me a lot of time if you just gave up and went mad now.
