Evolution: show sender or recipient (like InOut)

While trying out Ubuntu, I also want to give its default mail client, Evolution, a whirl.

One issue: I don't use folders. I keep all my mail, including sent mail, in my inbox---I figure sorting through it is a search tool's job, not mine. This means that the mail client shouldn't just show me the sender, but should instead be intelligent about either showing me the sender if it was an inbound email, or the recipient it it was an outbound one.

I do this on Thunderbird using the "Show InOut" extension ( Any way to achieve this on Evolution? I don't want to have to display both sender and recipient columns.

Many thanks,
