    Evolution quite often segfaulted for me, so I switched to sylpheed2, it's nice, handy and it uses far less memory than evolution or tb.

    Thunderbird works fine for me... But I'm still trying to figure out if I can use groups with it . But I think there's a workaround .

    But other than that, I like it very much... And along with Firefox, we keep it in the family .

    I tried Evolution, it's too slow. Can you give me the link of sylpheed2 ?

    I use Kontact. IMHO, it's the best all around PIM program out there. It also syncs very nicely with my Palm Pilot.

    "best" is a matter of personal opinion... what one person likes, another might not.

    Anyway, back to the question in hand. I use thunderbird, but i have heard good things about evolution.

    I second that, Kontact is the best one so far. beats outlook by heaps, includes pim, rss reader, calendar, notes, syncing with IM client (I haven't been able to get this to work yet). now if i can get my cell phone to sync with that then bye-bye windows.

    I don't use KDE anymore, but when I did, kmail was my favorite.

    Now I use thunderbird, sylpheed, or sylpheed-claws.
