New mail windows

Brendan Carroll
I am running Evolution 3.28.1-2 on Ubuntu 18.04. When I launch a new mail window using the button or keyboard shortcut, the window appears behind the main window and I get a pop-up stating that the Compose window is ready. Is there a way to have the compose window come to the front when launched?

Have not experienced that in Fedora 28 with Evolution 3.28.
This sounds like an issue on the window manager level?
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evolution/+bug/1732454
might be related (though not sure if that's the same version).

Running evolution 3.28.1-2 under Ubuntu 18.04 and everything works correctly.  I only use new mail button.

John,

can you please fix your settings to mark quotations as such?

I have quotations said to be in red, but apparently that is not enough. Please let me know how I should have my preferences set.

Thank you,

John

        Hi,
it sounds like this:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=792184
which points to a Wayland bug:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=780820
Thus it's more an issue of the desktop environment/window manager than
of evolution itself.
        Bye,
        Milan

First off, make sure the format box just under the Subject: header in
the compose window says "Plain Text" and not "HTML" when writing an
email (to this list).

In Prefences -> Composer Prefences set the "Reply style" to "Quoted"
(not "In Line"). (Note you can change the Reply Style on a per account
basis as well.)

The colour you specify quotations to be is only to highlight the
quotations when you view the emails.  It has nothing to do with
composing emails or how they are sent out.

P.
