You should try DavMail Exchange Gateway. You can use it "standalone" on your own computer, or on a server so you can share it with other colleagues. Basically, this application connects to the Exchange server (you can use the web address you gave) and translates all Exchange specific stuff into standards protocols: POP, IMAP, Caldav, SMTP, Carddav or LDAP. ...

If you are going to use MS Exchange mailboxes , evolution is the mail client. Thats the pro for evolution. If you are using IMAP, POP accounts, thunderbird is better.

You're not going to find a client that does Gmail via IMAP and treats labels as labels instead of folders. This is because IMAP shows Gmail's labels as folders, so any email client that you use is going to see folders, not labels. So really, your question boild down to: Is there a desktop mail client that treats IMAP folders as if they were labels? To ...

Make sure you have the following packages installed (they should have been installed by kubuntu-desktop, but may have gotten missed): sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-oxygen kde-config-gtk Then go to the KDE Control centre and make sure that the checkbox for using KDE themes in GTK apps is checked.

Well I have answered my own question (again). To correct this frankly stupid behaviour by Evolution one needs to go to ~/.config/gtk-3.0/ Inside that folder there should be a file called gtk.css, if not create it. Add these lines to the file: /* Black on white for HTML messages in Evolution Reader/Composer */ EMailView WebKitWebView, EMailReader ...

Evolution indeed is part of the GNOME Project. That's why it's Ubuntu's default mail client, I suppose. Obviously, this makes it better integrated into the GNOME desktop, especially when running Ubuntu. Please not that some of the following features can be achieved with Thunderbird, too, but it does require some work and doesn't come like that out of the ...

Thunderbird is likely to become the default mail client as soon as its issues with calendar, contacts and messaging menu are solved. There aren't any blueprints on this yet but Maverick's one suggests this change in the future. So if you don't want setup Evolution now and then Thunderbird in the future, then I would go with the latter one.

The package python-samba installs the missing lib file. However once I got past that issue, Evolution won't save my account info for my newly created Exchange account. Curious if you experience the same thing. EDIT: Had to kill all evolution related processes. Then two attempts I made at setting up my exchange account showed up as two accounts in ...

The Ubuntu phone uses the evolution data server and the data can be synchronized using syncevolution.

You'll need to use the evolution-mapi plugin - It took me a good long while to get it setup properly with my machine at work. I was able to get calendar and mail to sync properly. Some interesting things I had to do: For server I had to use the IP address of the Exchange server I had to use the Exchange MAPI as server type, if you're using Exchange 2003 or ...

New software needs testing before it can be pulled into a distribution and 2.32.0 was only released right at the end of September, not giving it anywhere near enough time for testing. Stability is all the more important in a mission-critical applications like Evolution, Firefox and OpenOffice. This is just how things go sometimes.

I used both before, but now I stick to the trio fetchmail + mutt + msmtp, to retrieve, manage and send e-mail respectively. Regardless of the pros/cons with Evolution VS Thunderbird, there isn't all that much difference between using any of the two (Evolution being slow with IMAP annoyed me though). Therefore, I suggest you have a look at mutt to see for ...

Evolution uses the same theme as your other desktop applications but it will probably look as dull as it is now. So you are out of luck there. To make this worthy answering I can advise on some cool themes made for Ubuntu 11.04 that also adjust evolution. This will install 3 themes: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox sudo apt-get update sudo ...

If you are upgrading, then all your previous applications that you have installed will remain installed - if there is a newer version of the app, then the application will be upgraded. Thus for evolution, your app will be upgraded - it will not be removed. N.B. evolution remains in the repository - it is just not installed by default in a new install. ...
