Evolution and large mails

Part of being a buildd admin is that one, at times, gets pretty large mails in plaintext. Such as this one:

  20 r   Mar 15 Quickstep Build (5,1M) Log for failed build of tetex-bin_3.0-1 (

Currently, I mostly read mail in evolution, and only do a few bits in mutt. One of the things I do in mutt is signing successful mails, because evolution isn't as easily scriptable as mutt is. Failed mails are usually replied to in evolution, though.

Not this one. When I hit the 'reply' button, it almost choked on the mail, and required a lot of processing time just to open the window. Really bad...
