So what's the best Linux email client? The 5 contenders are: Mutt, Evolution, KMail, Thunderbird and Claws Mail. Vote below:
When we told you about some discussions on changing some default application in Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10, Banshee was only being discussed.
I was just setting up Evolution again and went through the steps of setting up my personal account and my Ubuntu account. I’ve heard some people run into problems doing this considering the Ubuntu account, on the incoming side, is bound to your default address in Launchpad, but you still need to send mail out. Here is how I did it.
Ok, KMail (Kontact) has no export options. You can however create several mboxes, copy your mail into them and import the mboxes into Evolution one by one. This can be quite time consuming.
A few days ago I was looking for a guide to export my mail and settings (my accounts, address book, calendar, filters, etc.) to my laptop and I found a few guides. I wondered why, as far as I know, there is no way to export my data in Evolution (my favourite email client)…
In this imnotsurehowmanypart series, ill take you through my Ubuntu experience in corporate America, and give you some hopefully helpful tips to make it through the day without booting Windows, as I have been able to do for well over a year now. I found that the software i use most on a daily basis is my email client, and thats where im going to start.
Roelof Temmingh has written a cool new application which provides individuals with the ability to do data mining of publicly available information. It's a cross-platform Java application called Evolution, currently in its second beta, and available as a free download.
One of those niggling little things that I always mean to change in my Ubuntu installs but never really get around to it is the default mail client.
