Forget any other posts that I send in this thread, there was a date
screwup on my system. Sorry about the confusion.
Isn't Evolution sort of, kind of, maintained by our fair friends over at
Novell/Suse ? Does that have anything to do with this "Death to Evo"
The only over riding reason to _still_ use Evolution is to interface
directly to a MS Exchange server.
I happen to use it out of habit, not because it's better/worse. I
perceive the mail filtering rules to be easier to configure and more
robust than Thunderbird, but that may be _MY_ perception.
