Hm, actually, the composer, to me, seemed like one of the worst Evo

Hmm. maybe so, but I never use it in HTML mail, so I can't really
comment on that. For plain text, it's pretty good.
Anyway, I've been using Evo since... I don't know, maybe
version 0.1 :-)
and recently, when upgrading to FC6, I just couldn't take it anymore and
switched to Thunderbird.
It's great you could do that. I tried, believe me! (I've updated to FC6
months ago, and I still can't send email!!! HTF is this an acceptable
situation is beyond me, but people seem generally unconcerned about it)
However, there are a couple of things that make Thunderbird not useful
to me (due to the fact that I need to use it to comment on code):
1. The ability to select the portion that you want to reply to.
For large patches, this is priceless, I don't want to have a huge
reply that I have to trim to a few relevant lines.
2. More importantly, I need to be able to disable line wrapping,
which doesn't seem possible in Thunderbird.
Regardless, I'm sure a lot of folks will find it hard to switch
from Evo willy-nilly. RH needs to get its act together and fix
this situation before RHEL5.
