Where does Evo support full rich text in the composer? I don't see that
option anywhere, so a pointer on this would be helpful.

I (obviously) disagree with your opinion. There are appropriate times
for sending HTML and for sending plain text messages. If Evolution is so
philosophically against HTML formatted messages, why do they then care
to be able to render messages sent in this format? Seems hypocritical to
me. A good e-mail client should provide both the capability and the
choice to send in HTML. Were it not for that I need to use Exchange, I
would have dropped Evolution some time ago over its lack of a good HTML
composer.

Cheers,

Chris
