My current Evolution session has been running for a month or so, though
I've had it run for longer periods of time, too. I only close it when
Gnome needs restarting. I manage three IMAP accounts on Evolution -- one
GMail IMAP, one Exchange IMAP, and one Cyrus IMAP -- and have never seen
Evolution crash. I've been using Evolution Mail daily at work since 9.04
came out. I will be upgrading to 10.x in the fall.
