evolution / menu bar/ tools button / GONE?!?!

Asked by Adam Bushey on 2011-04-25

Binary package hint: evolution

 using Ubuntu 10.10 - the Maverick Meerkat - released in October 2010
Evolution 2.30.3

Expected to use tools menu to erit a filter rule.

Instead I found tools button was GONE!!!

extra info and secondary question...
I have a large number of accounbts and a HUGE back log of messages. It seems I max out the program very early on and it just stops downloading messages and I can't get it to start again even after I delete a lot of older messages... I am totally new to Ubuntu and Evolution but have been fixing windows for years. I don't want to have to learn to fix another OS and group of supporting programs. Is Ubuntu not for me?

This question was originally filed as bug #770422.

You can edit filter rules from the Message menu.

In any case, this appears to be a support request, and such requests should be sent to the answers tracker. I'm converting this to a question.

Sorry... still very new to all this... I dug around a while and found my error... Guess it was an older version that had the tools menu... it's under edit now... and I was to blind and tired to see it... sorry again
