Evolution Vs. Thunderbird
- date: October 11, 2011
In 11.10 Ubuntu decided to replace Evolution with Thunderbird. Although Thunderbird is a very good e-mail client, I don't understand this decision. This is due to the fact that Thunderbird doesn't have a calendar or tasks. It also lacks in Google services integration.
If you want to replace Evolution at least replace it with an application that has the same functionality.

Evolution vs Thunderbird
- date: March 30, 2010
Hi folks, thought I'd start this thread partly for myself, and partly for others wanting to decide between Evolution & Thunderbird.
I originally installed Evolution a few years back as my default mail client under Linux, and eventually made the switch to Thunderbird. TB just seemed fast, friendlier, cooler, more intuitive, and with more features.
Having just updated my netbook to karmic netbook remix, I decided to give Evolution another go. It's supposed to feature better desktop integration than Thunderbird right? Well, enticed by that, and spurred on by the faith the Ubuntu community has put in Evolution, I thought I'd give it a go.
I'm trying really hard to like Evolution. I really want it to be a better experience, but I'm having a very hard time beating the latest Thunderbird release. Could someone please remind me of the advantages of using Evolution instead? It's fast than TB with lightning, but using TB with sunbird (external lightning calendar) seems just as fast,

Evolution has been the default e-mail client in Ubuntu. Many say Thunderbird is better or easier to use. And I suppose, others like Evolution. I guess it is a matter of what one is comfortable with. To the the developers: Why did you pick Evolution? I have tried both, but Thunderbird seems more intuitive to me. I would like a few opinions from this forum.
Evolution vs. Thunderbird
- date: September 27, 2009
Back when I used ubuntu 7.04, I installed Thunderbird and had it share mailboxes, etc, with Thunderbird installed in Windows 2000 on my multiboot PC. I used a small FAT32 partition to share things.
I now have ubuntu 9.04 and am trying to decide on which mail prog to use.
I'd like to try installing Evolution in Windows, if that proves to be satisfactory, I'll try to share Evolution files with ubuntu Evolution.
My questions, at this time, are there documents that explain:
1. how to share files with Evolution on both Windows and Ubuntu;
2. Can Evolution import Thunderbird mailboxes;
3. Can Evolution import Thunderbird address book;
4. Can Evolution import THunderbird message filters.
I'm reluctant to print out the 194 page Evolution manual until I get answers to the above.
P.S. Is there a forum devoted to discussing Evoultion?
Evolution mail/news/rss vs. Thunderbird
- date: February 5, 2010
Since I started using Ubuntu 9.10 (moved from XP) I have been using Evolution as e-mail client. Besides using it for e-mail I would also like to use it as a News and RSS reader. Settings for making a news account are present but I had some trouble setting it up, so I could use some help on that. Also, I would like to know what I need to set it up so I can recieve RSS feed?
I could just dump Evolution and use Thunderbird for all those functions (e-mail, news, rss) but one thing Evolution has is great integration with Ubuntu, and by that I mean calendar notification that shows a small clock icon with exclamation point next to date and time, which points to alerts from calendar. I would like to know how to get that functionality with Thunderbird?

Evolution vs. Kontact

What are the main differences between Evolution and Kontact (The KDE PIM applications)? How does Evolution 2 run on KDE 3.3 like? I am correct in saying that Evolution is a 'more professional' product than Kontact?
I'm running KDE 3.3 with SuSE 9.2 on several boxes (and have no intention of changing to GNOME) but I have heard good things about Evolution.
How to Backup & Restore Email in Evolution & Thunderbird
- date: October 5, 2010
Any nice people out there who can help me backup my email in Evolution & Thunderbird? I am running separate accounts in both (just to avoid confusion). I'd also appreciate if you could tell me how I should go about restoring, should the need arise at a later stage.
Thank you in advance.
