7.10. E-Mail and Calendering

Novell Evolution seamlessly combines e-mail, a calendar, an address book, and a task list in one easy-to-use application. With its extensive support for communications and data interchange standards, Evolution can work with existing corporate networks and applications, including Microsoft Exchange. To start Evolution, click Applications+Office+Evolution.

The first time you start it, Evolution prompts you with a few questions as it sets up a mail account and helps you import mail from your old mail client. Then it shows you how many new messages you have and lists upcoming appointments and tasks, the current weather, and news from news feeds. The calendar, address book, and mail tools are available in the shortcut bar on the left.
