Hi Ric,

While I haven't used Evolution for Windows, I'm a member of the 
aforementioned group :)  For me, in my medium-sized corporate 
environment, it was rather an easy sell.  The developers already like 
using QT for designing their applications, so that was easy. As for 
management, I simply ran the numbers for *legally* licensing everything 
they use from Redmond, vs GNU/Linux, Open Office, etc.  Seeing as how I 
do all their support anyway, it is/was a no-brainer.

Keep up the good fight :)  I'll be interested in seeing what, if any, 
solutions to your issue pop up as one can never have too many tools in 
the toolbox known as 'benign subterfuge' :)
