Its my favorite mail and calendar program that I won't miss. I had the problem of how to use it without "Connection to calendar xxxxx not possible" after upgrading 19.3 -> 20. The post of diapason helped me a bit, but not completely. *SOLUTION* completely uninstlall evolution. Via BleachBit i cleaned my storage [of course this is a lazy solution ->Terminal rulez always ;) ] After cleanage and uninstall I reinstalled evolution. Without cleaning some stuff it hadn't worked. Up to know this programm runs again like a charm. Hopefully forever ;)

My preferred email client and I have used it for years. It was working perfectly in Mint 19.3, Evolution version 3.28.5, (Ubuntu 18.04). When I upgraded to Linux Mint 20 (Ubuntu 20.04) which has Evolution version 3.36.3 it would not connect to my swissmail address. There was an error performing the TLS handshake. **SOLUTION** I installed the latest version 3.36.4 from the Gnome weblink above.

Great, much faster on start than Thunderbird. One weak point: I could not display a Google Calendar someone shares with me, which on Thunderbird works very well.

UPDATE: I've put up too much now of my time addressing this program that I rarely use that does things like reload all of my email messages all over again for no reason and now this message "Error performing TLS handshake: Internal error in memory allocation. Am moving to Thunderbird.

it is a good idea to update it by now to 3.37, as Milan promises that filters work on it faster as i have to wait about ten minutes for sounds to be played and messages to be sorted before working...

This is definately the mail program to use if your not going to use your web browser to login and get mail. This has been my favorite because of the ease of use with Satan, I mean Gmail. I used Thunderbird for a while which is damn near identical in so many ways but I have always come back to Evolution, it's fast, easy to use, looks great. I'm on LM-19 currently, it should be the default.

Using it in LM 19 is a great expirience that my google account was recognize without problem ... the integration with the system is great. I was user of thunderbird and it works better ... Very good job !

Mixed feelings experience. From one side I seem to like the design and its auto-configurability . On the other, it is a buggy software, and it is amazing the fact that despite having being around for this long it is still buggy. I find it hard to reccomend it on top of the competition, namely Thunderbird from Mozilla.

Excellent, better than thunderbird

Evolution reminded me a lot of MS Outlook. It handled the PST files well, and integrated smoothly in a corporate environment for an otherwise Microsoft-minded office. There were times, however, that my OS would seem to halt when running Evolution for about a minute or two at a time. Only noticed it when Evolution was running. (Maybe a background process that would demand 100% cpu usage). Other than that, it seemed fairly stable, (just a wee bit buggy maybe), pretty solid and reliable overall. Ended up switching to Thundirbird with MailDav to handle my Outlook account, but Evolution is a great choice and saw lots of use!

Perfect. In combination with SyncEvolution and Synthesis you can syncronize with Android.

My favorite ... I'm using Evolution a couple of years now, never had problems, nice integration with Gnome-Calendar and nice compatibility for Microsoft .pst datafiles !

Too flaky. Sometimes errors getting mail; no in-app ability to sync Google Contacts now that Google forces Oauth

Impossible to filter spam because spamassasin and bogofillter integration are missing!
