[maemo-users] Diablo's Modest/Email

Ok, so I've upgraded to diablo over the weekend and for the most part it is 
great.  However I can't stand modest, it just doesn't work in a way that 
works for me and it appears to have bugs that the older email didn't.

My first choice at this point would be to just be able to install the older 
email and ditch modest.  If that is not possible the level of usage for email 
on my n810 goes way down.  Below are the problems, I'm having if anyone has a 
way to make this work for me, please let me know.

1.  No option to delete the message off of the server when deleting.  I don't 
want to "remove" the message from the server when I download them on the n810 
but I want the option and normally will delete the messages from the server 
when I delete them from the n810, however for the 10 messages each week that 
I receive I want to save them on the server.  I don't want to do imap.

2. I use multiple email accountings on my n810.  The old email allowed me to 
have them all show up in the same inbox where I could simply read, reply with 
the correct return and delete.  Very efficient!  Now I have three separate 
inboxes and have to switch back and forth all of the time.  This drives me 
nuts and seems very stupid.  Can I make a folder and use filters or some sort 
of client side script to just move them all into once folder?

3.  The email notification doesn't work reliably on my unit.  I get the 
blinking led in the upper left corner, but as soon as I wake up the unit and 
the display comes on the blinking stops and the blinking that use to be in 
the lower bottom icon isn't there so now I can't see what email accounting 
triggered the blink and I can't see the message.  Is this a bug or something 
I have setup wrong.

So there you have it, maybe small issues for others but you might as well have 
removed one of my legs and asked me if I noticed whether it was now harder to
