since evolution is the only tool (that I know of) that supports
Exchange servers. That is certainly an important feature for many
people in corporate environments (or people who use FC at home and
need evolution to use the work e-mail).
Evolution in extras is a bad idea. Evolution in core is a worse idea. What
other as good as unmaintained large buggy package exposed to external attack
and with known unfixed DoS bugs (and probably worse yet to be found) do
Evolution belongs in the bitbucket.
And what are you suggesting as a replacement ? If Evolution ends up in
the bitbucket, something else with the same functionality should replace
it. So what other Gnome email+calendar+addressbook+task management
application should i use instead of evolution ?
And why is evolution unmaintained? I mean it seems to be important
enough that expensive commercial Linux distributions like RHEL use it as
a default email client.
