I always used Thunderbird, and have put that on everyone's PC when I
installed Ubuntu for them.  For my part, I wanted to spend long enough
using Evolution to get a good feel for it.  There are one or two things
I don't like, and a lot of things I do like, so for now I'll stick with
it.  I really want to try to stick with the standard out-of-the-box
Ubuntu releases for now while I'm on the Ubuntu Advertising team.

Thanks for your comments.  You're very probably right!

As for Gmail, I like to have my stuff stored locally so I can access
e-mails when I don't have internet access.  iMap on both NetBook and
Desktop suits me well as it syncs both computers nicely.

What do you see when you use your Computer? Same old thing?
