Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

When setting up a new account in Evolution for the first time, a fake email is "sent" to the user that talks about Evolution's features. In Gutsy, this email refers to version 2.10 of Evolution in the text of the email. I believe that this is simply because the content of the email was overlooked when 2.10 was released. This may mean that there are other problems with the content of that email message. I have pasted the text of the email below.

Getting Started
