Description of problem:
Evolution lacks and "undo delete email" function. Why is this needed?
Because if you accidentally hit the delete key and your trash folder
is very large, there is absolutely now way to find out which email was
deleted and moved to the trash folder. Its not much use having a trash
folder if you can't find which message was the last to be added.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fail to realize focus is still on evo
2. Hit delete key trying to delete something in nautilus
3. Realize you've deleted critical email
4. Hunt in vain for an "undo" menu option

Actual Results:  Email cryptically hidden in trash folder

Expected Results:  Not sure this is so unexpected...
