I can't find a setting the makes Evolution display messages sent by me in thread view. I can find them in Sent folder, but I'd like them to be part of the normal threads.

  • I don't know if the fact that I'm using Gmail's IMAP has anything to do with it. – tshepang May 22 '11 at 14:51

You will need a couple of steps. Enable the threaded folder view with Ctrl+T. Then set "Include threads: all related" in the search folder configuration.

If you are using an SMTP server other than Gmail's you may need a further hack. You could bcc yourself at a plus extension of your Gmail address; something like "+threaded", then configure the external Evolution accounts to "Always bcc to" this address.

There is a detailed walk-through of this approach by Matt McCutchen on his blog.

  • "if using a server other than gmail, you could use gmail's plus addressing feature." - did i read that right? – Woodrow Barlow Aug 5 '16 at 16:20
  • @WoodrowBarlow Yes, you are not obligated to use Gmail's SMTP service. – jasonwryan Aug 5 '16 at 19:39
