Thanks for your explanation. However it seems that this behaviour being affecting just GNOME.
IIRC, under KDE for example, I see always the "same black".
Before you change the font in Evolution, can you try getting some screenshots of it running under KDE and GNOME, for both types of messages (HTML and plain text)? Maybe each desktop's defaults for font rendering are different.
(We *do* have a few problems with font rendering in GNOME, due to the way our Freetype/fontconfig packages are set up - last time I looked, the RGB subpixel smoothing parameters were not taking effect. See https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=566125 for a high-level overview of this.
For the low-level, complicated details, see the old bug https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=104365 - I'm not convinced that it is fully fixed yet.
Really also under KDE is possible to appreciate a slight difference between Black tones: HTML message composing appears a bit darker and brilliant than TXT one.
BTW, IMO under KDE the difference is minor than GNOME:

LXDE is not affected by hinting/antialasing, here the black is as it should be!
