I understand it is a problem for some, but the stability problems
affect everyone. Unfortunately a lot of devel effort these days seems
to be focussed on Exchange compatibility, another issue which is
vitally important for some users but of no interest at all to others,
including myself. So it goes. I still use Evo because I like most of
the bits I use (essentially just the mail component) but I'm
increasingly inclined to jump ship to Claws or the new Tbird. The day
the cost of changing becomes less than the benefit, ciao Evo.

I'm not unsympathetic to people in this situation.

Perhaps you mean this (not actually a plugin but a rewrite):
http://www.go-evolution.org/New_Composer. This is already in 2.24 and
apparently will be improved, so maybe you'll get your wish.
