My remark was about the top-level menu structure, which tends to the plural.

Yes; Evolution is definitely not a one task piece of software. Email
functionality is just one part of what Evolution provides. Å more
appropriate section for it would be a Apps/Groupware which we currently
don't have.

Perhaps it is time to review the menu structure. Looking at what I have in
Apps/Net on my system, I think it would be appropriate to have new
		Web browsers

		Workgroup oriented software integrating mail, scheduling etc.

		Instant messaging systems (Jabber, ICQ etc.)

		Internet Relay Chat clients

		Email clients (MUAs).

Cyberspace, a final frontier. These are the voyages of my messages, 
on a lightspeed mission to explore strange new systems and to boldly go
where no data has gone before.
