Evolution Mail: A Second Look

I first became aware of Evolution as soon as I use Linux. My first experience with it is mixed. The core functions were working fine but configuration was buggy. There were other mail applications that were easy to configure such as Thunderbird. Evolution also offers a full suite of enterprise features such as calendar, contacts management, LDAP, even Exchange. But it was buggy and slow it it works at all.



I tried Evolution again (after being a Thunderbird user) and Evolution 3.x brought with it heavy development in the tradition of open source. Right now I'm using Evolution 3.6.4. It is easy to configure, fast to start, well integrated into the GNOME desktop. I am now enjoying my email tasks and my Gmail (email, contacts and calendar) works well and easy with Evolution 3.6.4.
