Ok, I really have to start this series. I'm not calling it "Evo Sucks" just yet because some of the issues (like the one in this post) are really funny and make for a good laugh. Here it goes:
I use the threaded view because that's how I like to read my mail. I also have selected to see deleted messages (with an overstrike) until I expunge them manually, for two reasons: 1) I'm used to this way, 2) without this option, threaded view is absolutely useless as deleting the message up in the thread makes the thread jump to a new location, depending on the date of the next message. Ouch!
But here is the funny part: the Evo toolbar has got three interesting buttons: Delete, Junk, Not Junk. Now think about it for a minute...
- In my Inbox folder, when on a not-deleted message, the "Delete" and "Junk" buttons are active, "Not Junk" is inactive.
- In my Inbox folder, when on a deleted message, still the "Delete" and "Junk" button are active and "Not Junk" is inactive. If I press "Delete" again, it, well, deletes the already deleted message. I take advantage of that and delete messages that I really don't like up to seven times, but that's a really rare occasion and I can live without having the button for it. If I want to undelete the email on the other hand, which I need every other day, I have to rightclick on the message and choose "Undelete". The "Delete" option is there in the context menu too. None of them are in the "Message" menu though.
- If in my Inbox folder, I click "Junk" on a message, it disappears. If I want to "Not Junk" it, I have to change to the Junk folder first.
- While in the "Junk" folder, I see the "Junk" button inactive and the "Not Junk" one active. If I "Not Junk" a message here, it disappears again. Not sure where it goes...
If you are wondering why the "Junk" and "Not Junk" buttons are not merged into a single button, and why the "Delete" button doesn't turn into "Undelete" if a deleted message is selected, you see how funny Evolution can at times be.Update:
