Handling localized "Re:" in subjects

Traditionally a "Re:" prefix is added to a subject line when replying to an email. Some email applications use localized terms for this (like "SV:" in Danish or "AW: in German). Evolution can recognize these terms to avoid subject lines getting longer as the conversation continues.

  • Open the Terminal application.

  • Run the command gsettings set org.gnome.evolution.mail composer-localized-re 'AW,SV' (in case that you want "AW:" and "SV:" to be recognized).

You can also use the dconf-editor application to do this.
