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.

The only real problem is they didn't have the common sense to make" leave on the server" as default. It takes all of the email off of your iPhone App which is a nuisance they need to change. Imagine that, some program decides to STEAL all of your email records from the server without your permission making it the default setting. Something is very wrong with this and someone needs to be fired.

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!

\Linux Mint is still running version 3.13.7. Is not able to display pictures in some mailformats :-( We really need an update to a more recent version.

Great for Enterprise environment, but version 3.10 seems to be buggy. Problems with Calendar updates, searching Global Address List. And Evolution crashes each time I want to edit my email signature. Pse update, thx.

This version has security issues and is not the latest stable version available for linux mint 17.3. Could you please make the latest version available. Thanks.

The only thing keeping me from being fully on board is that I have to turn on access for less secure apps in gmail. I'll give it another try when this is fixed.
