No official PPA that I'm aware of.  There are a couple of unofficial
PPAs but they are not kept up to date (for example I know of one that
has Evo 3.16.0 but it hasn't been updated to 3.16.5 which is the current
latest version, and has many important fixes).

It looks like Ubuntu 15.10 will move to 3.16.x, which will be great.

I've tried Thunderbird a few times and I just prefer Evo.  The only
really serious problem I have is the utterly inane way Gnome deals with
password requests, popping up a modal dialog that blocks your entire
desktop.  This is the single stupidest design decision since Clippy, but
it's not Evo's fault.
