5 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 !

3 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.

3 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!

3 Evrything woks but contacts with Google contacts (gmail) is broken. The authentication process doesn't work and Google contacts are not available. Other than that, it works fine. I am tempted to compile the latest verison on my own, but don't want to break packages. Please fix this - it's works fine on other distros.

3 I suppose all the problems come because there is no upgrade since version 3.10.4, but evolution is now in 3.16 (stable) and 3.17 (beta). Can you provide upgrades through the official repositories, please?

1 Utterly useless. I downloaded it because thunderbird doesn't support Microsoft exchange. I absolutely need to be able to access my work email, so i downloaded evolution. I was disappointed to find out that not only does evolution not come with an exchange handler, but the two that are available simply do not work. The web services one simply takes all my information but never saves them, just shows me the evolution program interface after going through the wizard. I close the program and the "wizard" pops back up as if I had never even run it. The MAPI handler just says "incorrect password" all the time despite me entering the correct password. I don't know why it doesn't seem to be saving my settings or communicating properly, but it has proven uterrly useless for what I downloaded it for. This program SHOULD handle this sort of task with ease, but apparent laziness in coding has made even the most basic task completely impossible and non functional. Thanks to this, there is now one thing that windows can do that linux cannot, and that's connect to any Exchange email servers that 99% of business use......way to drop the ball.

5 Отличное приложение для работы с почтой, в разы удобней чем Thunderbird (который не понятно почему сделали клиентом по-умолчанию). Имеется органайзер,где записываю что и когда сделать, чтобы не забыть, отличная замена Outlook для деловых людей. Да, если вам требуется лишь почитать почту, то можно вообще ничего не ставить и с веб браузера посмотреть - легче и никакого головняка. Если кому-то не ясно как с чем работать (что удивляет т.к. интерфейс вроде как понятный), то тут уж ничего не поможет если человек не умеет пользоваться google и головой.

2 No obvious Contact list. No (obvious) way to import a contact list / address book. No in-program help files. The article on Wiki is useless. Instructions on how to use a program should come from the developer, not 3rd parties or users. Too bad. It could have replaced several applications.

5 I prefer Evolution but it seems to not be supported well running Mint 14 with the Mate Desktop. I started to move to Thunderbird, but besides being very difficult to move my existing email from Evolution to Thunderbird, the size grew much larger and more than my hard drive could handle. This was really disconcerting as Evolution was the default email app when I began using Linux, and changing the default to Thunderbird requires much effort to retain your existing email.

5 Perfect for my netbook, use it as a local app for Gmail and Google Calendar. All the functionality I need seems to be there. Thunderbird is a little prettier, but Evolution uses about 1/3 the resources and includes Calendar as well. The only little thing I noticed is it looks like you can drag and drop calendar items, but I couldn't get it to work. You can however right-click cut and right-click paste, a reasonable workaround.

2 Didn't work for me. When trying to setup an account's IMAP/SMTP settings it just hangs at "Please Wait: Quering server..". No progress bar, no errors, nothing. Since there appears to be no way to setup these settings manually I had to go instead with Thunderbird which worked. (using Zoho: a lesser known email provider so this might be the problem)
