I do, and I know several other people who do. The question how to enable maildir for an account is a question that comes up often on the users mailing list, so the demand exists. If not that many people actually is it, that's probably because switching to it requires quite a bit of fiddling. > I remember multiple problems, some subdirs, > windows support etc. Milan did an analysis, some time back, dont > remember that very well tbh. Deciding to move away from mbox as the default format would be the perfect opportunity to address these problems and make more users happy: those who already use maildir and those who can start to use it and then benefit from its advantages. > Cool.

With maildir, applying flag changes would be so cheap that they wouldn't have to go through the summary. -- Bye, Patrick Ohly -- patrick.o...@gmx.de http://www.estamos.de/ _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionemail@example.com http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
