Re: [Evolution] Evo usable as daily/regular mail app?

switching to those; plus I just think Evo is cool.

Yeah, Evo is cool.  I have been useing Evo as my only mail client (I
lie, pine when an evo release has a problem with atachments) since 0.0

But, I dont care that much about my mail as I use evo from home (MS only

It has been up and down, it's a bit down now on the latest snapshot I
use, but thats to be expected.  The only precaution I use is to make a
copy of my mail spool before trying a new snapshot.

So, what do people think?  My setup would be using POP, and I'd want
make decent use of filters, multiple mail folders (and nested

I use fetchmail to grab from my ISP over night (and any time I go on
line).  It's probably the best option on a dial up, then evo reads from
the local mail spool.  It works realy really well (note for those who
care: though I don't like the new window that shows the import progress,
I prefered this info in the status bar, thats what I think a status bar
is for).

I use the vFolders all the time.  I sort my incomming mail into one
folder for Friends and Family, one for Work, and one for lists.  Any
else (read SPAM) is left in the Inbox.  I then have vFolders setup for
each mailing list or special friends etc.  It works, but not perfect
yet, but it works really well.  Well enough that I suspect it's my setup
thats causeing the problem rather than a bug (there is only one small
problem with one mailing list)

If you are a serious maiu feind, try Evo, but back up your incomming
mail.  Find a version of Evo that works well and keep it for a few
weeks.  I change mine about once a week since the snapshots started, but
like I said I don't care too much about mail and addresses loses etc.
My partner Leanne on the other hand I still have useing Netscape.  If I
lost her mail or a single address I would die a slow slow death (like I
did last winter!)

Try evo, be carefull, but give it a reall go.  It's only going to get
better  (but YOU KNEW that already, right?)
