Ignorant newbie question: Can Evolution (part of Gnome proj.) be used in the Xfce desktop? What about Claws? What do you think of them (especially reliability)?
What I want:
- separate file for each message - in other words, not MBOX format! (Maildir or MH are fine, I think - discuss?)
- clear migration from Thunderbird - in other words, away from MBOX.
- multiple accounts.
- incoming & outgoing mail go into same mailbox (yes, that's the way I like it).
- threading with all threads permanently expanded.
I will be writing & sending & receiving & reading mail from my Mint guest inside a virtual machine.
I will be writing & reading mail in my WinXP host outside the virtual machine.
The WinXP host doesn't have networking (yes, it's possible).
The mailboxes will be in a shared folder accessible in guest & host.
Thanks Much - Mark.
I've been using claws for years now, it's an excellent email client. I've never really liked the Outlook wanna be Evolution for it's bloated and for me has always been a bit buggy. Claws Mail is fast and with a few plugins like tnef (for reading MS email), beautify (for html) it's excellent. Very fast and stable, give it a shot
