My experience with Evolution is not good. I use it, for that exact
reason (exchange access) but the exchange module is so buggy my client
crashes many times a day, doesn't display all mail and has more than a
couple of issues with the calendar function.
Even the pop/imap accounts are impacted. Put mildly - Evolution is SLOW.
It lacking important (to me) features but since it seems to be the only
game in two to access exchange data source I have to stick with it.
If anyone knows of a linux client that will do Exchange mail and
calendar I'll be very grateful.
PS. One of my most often typed commands on this laptop is: evolution
--force-shutdown Evolution simply hangs, fails or messes itself up. I
will be working in different apps, and all of a sudden bug-buddy shows
up on evolution.
PPS. I noticed that several of my problems are old bugs on the evolution
bugzilla site. They've been "dismissed" or they're downplayed as not
important. This, to me, isn't a good sign. I'm definitely on the hunt
for an alternative client.
