just to throw more fuel on this:

I used the evo version (and exch connector) that came with SUSE 10.0
... and had the following issues:

1)really really slow startup (excruciating)
2)"generic error" subscribing to another users calendar
3)fairly often crashing
4)general flakiness

I upgraded that version to 2.6 (still on SUSE 10.0) and it seemed that
the startup speed improved marginally, but the other errors/issues

I now have a fresh, clean install of SLED running 2.6 EVO ... same
damn issues. Plus, there does not seem to be a way to upgrade to any
newer version on SLED 10. But, from what I am hearing, the 2.8.x
versions and above are no better.

Can you say "not ready for a corporate deployment"? Can you say ... if
the brutus option is not better, then EVO is just not an option. I
guess I'll have to keep using *something*, perhaps I'll continue to
struggle with EVO, but I will NOT suggest it to customers.

Despite that gentoo evo 2.8 branch is masked, it's noticeably better
than 2.6


2.8 is much faster and well...bit more stable.

(ps.I have to use Evol because of the MS freaks we have in the IT
department, but I believe that email should be web-based, with local
offline cache; fat clients are just an overkill)
