Because Evolution wanted to check *all* incoming mail, it would choke on the
combined weight of Debian-user and Ubuntu-users. I had to leave it running
24/7, and check for incoming every 5 minutes to keep it from hanging up. It
was either that, or forget about spam filtering.
I've switched to Kmail, where I can have the spam filter do it's thing after
all the mailing list mail has been sent to the proper folders. That lessens
the load quite a bit.
AND... I just got back from the local Barnes & Noble (which has Linux
magazines *prominently* displayed at the first rack as you enter :)), and
after reading the review in Linux Format, I'm tempted to give Thunderbird a
spin. 9/10 in the ratings. We'll see 'bout that...
