I'm having cd-burning issues also. The *.*-47.1 kernel and recent glibc
updates fixed some of them, but I'm still getting some coasters, and
some aren't fixating properly. I'm updating to the latest rawhide stuff
now, so I'll see if it helps any.

In the mail composer window, you can toggle between HTML and plain text
by selecting Format -> HTML (this is in evolution 1.2.x).

Is the "Save" directory under your inbox? Go into
~/evolution/local/path/to/save and check the permissions on the
directory. I've got about 2 dozen subfolders and have no problems moving
messages about.
