I have the same luck with Evolution... apparently it's still the same
bloated, unstable crap that it was years ago when I gave up on it the
last time :/

IN my case:

Random, inexplicable crashes.
Random, inexplicable hangs.
hangs when trying to add a contact from a directory to a new e-mail.
hangs randomly when filtering messages.
hangs randomly when pulling headers from my IMAP servers.

None of these leave behind any clues in logs or elsewhere that I've
been able to find.  The only reason I haven't dumped Evolution so far
is that I'm too busy at the moment to take the time to install
Thunderbird or some other mail client and configure it to match my
current setup.
