Pkill just searches for all processes of the current user which match
the leading pattern evolution and kills them.
evolution --force-shutdown kills
In this case there isnt much of a difference since you probably
dont have any other application called evolution-* which is
running but is unrelated to evolution.
Its fairly straightforward to see that using evolution --force-shutdown

Hope that helps.
the -f flag matches on the entire command line. yes the
--force-shutdown, any how I just used this option and it has the added

Linux box and run all day, reminders pop up, mail comes in, no problems,

I do have a vested interest in getting tools that will enable an
enterprise to use a Linux desktop and not have these sorts of issues.
