How to sort or manually arrange Evolution Mail Account Names in Preferences?
Is there some way I can re-arrange the order of Mail Account Names in Evolution’s Properties dialog?
I find it strange that this list shows entries in the order in which I add them, and there is no facility to change this order.
The column is not sortable, and there are no Move-Up/Down buttons.
Update: I’m using Ubuntu 10.04 (2.6.32-25-generic)… Evolution 2.28.3
I agree with aneeshep, under Ubuntu 10.10 they are sorted alphabetically. If the order is not to your liking, prefix the account names with numbers is all I can suggest.
As far as I am aware there isn’t a way to manually change the order, but I am quite happy to be corrected.
Maybe it is something that should be filed as a feature request to the evolution team.
There is a bug filed in launchpad regarding this issue :
I’m currently prefixing my accounts with numbers to achieve the order I want them displayed. Hopefully the evolution team is working on adding the convenience of drag n drop hierarchy.
This issue has been addressed and now you CAN re-order folders. To do so, go into Edit/Preferences/Mail Accounts. In that view you can drag folders to the order you desire, as well as select a default account.
I am using Evolution 3.10.4 in Ubuntu 14.04.
