Evolution Pain



Evolution just doesn't seem ready for prime time, at least on x86_64 boxes like I have. It is by far the most unstable of my Fedora Core 5 applications -- it quits unexpectedly or stops responding at least once an email session, and often several times. The address book is too difficult to use -- for instance it won't autocomplete email addresses, and often an address you thought you added to the address book is lost in the bit bucket. I notice it takes way too long to download email -- longer than Mozilla Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook or Outlook Express.

I guess I'll try Thunderbird 1.5.0.5 for a couple of weeks and see if it is any improvement. I tried it in the early, pre-1.0 versions and after several weeks it arbitrarily munched all my folders, leaving about half the contents of each one "invisible". I hope this version is an improvement.
