Good news for RHEL users:
My Oracle Linux got its upgrade to version 7.4 yesterday, the other
RHEL derivates are pretty likely geting a similar update these days.

On Oracle Linux 7.4 gtk3 is now version 3.22.10, and there's
webkitgtk4 included now. Evolution is preinstalled as 3.22.

I was able to backport Evolution 3.24 to my distro which already has
the fix for the issue with formatting quoted elements in HTML replies

Just for the records, I used the .fc26.src rpms, got some prerequisites:
- made sure I had a recent-enough cmake (I've got 3.9, but older
versions *may* work)
- upgraded python-sphinx to 1.2.3-4.fc23 (found and downloaded via
rpmsearch.net, backporting would have been tedious)
- backported and installed gnome-autoar-0.2.2 and libarchive-3.3.

In the .spec files for evolution, evolution-data-server and
evolution-ews I changed the following:
- replace %cmake by cmake and comment out all "Recommends" lines
- added the following arguments to the call of cmake:
        -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=/usr/lib64 \
        -DLIB_SUFFIX=64 \

When installing I need to override dependencies because evolution 3.22
is a dependency of gnome-shell (which is not of interest for me since
I use e20), and gnome-shell is a dependency of gdm (which I do use). I
never got why dependencies are wired like this in gnome, and this is
one of the reasons why I generally don't use it - even though I still
use some programs from its ecosystem).

I'm a happy camper now. Got a fairly recent evolution version with the
(for me) important html quote fix.
