http://www.gnome.org/projects/evolution/download.shtml

I know it's another Gnome program, but I think it's far better than KMail. I work from home and get a lot of my assignments (and some of my work) through email; I tried to copy my KMail files to a flash drive for redundancy, and it borked; restoring onto another Pardus installation gave me a bunch of empty messages dated December 31, 1969. I know I've posted some crazed things on the Pardus Worldforum, but I do know how to do backups! I really can't trust KMail to keep track of my email, and it's my livelihood.

Evolution has a real live archiving/backup/restore system that I have tested successfully. It also works fine under KDE (I was running Mandriva 2008-Spring fairly regularly for a while), though I don't know what dependency issues there may be.

So I would deeply appreciate it if the package team would consider Evolution. It's really the only reason I have to kick into Ubuntu.

I did notice this package but I am not fully sure what it means exactly, maybe you know it:

And after quite some searching I noticed the experimental/development phase:

http://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/playground/eren/desktop/gnome/evolution/

You might give it a try by doing:

Code:
sudo pisi bi http://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/playground/eren/desktop/gnome/evolution/pspec.xml

and then install the freshly built pisi package

Code:
sudo pisi it evolution-2.10.1.pisi

NOTE: no guarantee on this, since it is not yet officially released and experimental

NOTE ALSO: the exact pisi package name might be slightly different then the one in the 2nd code listed above, the name of the freshly built PISI package appears in the Konsole once it has finsihed building, use that name of course.

Since Evolution on Pardus would only be experimental for the time being, why don't you try other stable email clients, I'd reccomend Thunderbird (made by the Mozilla Foundation):

Hi Michiel, from what I understand, that's not the mail-and-calendar client itself, but a sort of internal database component that works with the Gnome desktop. It's something the Gnome-Pardus development people will definitely be needing.

I'm glad Evolution is at least in the experimental phase, but I probably shouldn't be using experimental packages Cheesy.

Hi Mhmrcs, I'm not withdrawing my request for Evolution Wink but thanks for the suggestion. It had been a long time since I looked at Thunderbird; I disliked an early Windows version I tried, but it's come a long way, and I think it will be OK -- even though it thinks I should only be allowed one SMTP! I'll know more in a few days when I get a bunch of filters going and try to backup the critical files and open them elsewhere. So I'm glad you talked me into trying T-Bird again.

As a last alternative, it you can't get used to Thunder-Bird, you can try looking for Evolution in the repositories mentioned in the post above (go to the website, [Control-F] etc).

the full Evolution Groupware Suite (Novell Inc) comes as pisi packages (along with the needed Gnome packages) with Pardus Corporate 2.
Can easily be used in conbination with e.g. your GMail account (IMAP/SMTP) and that seems to work fine as extracted from a succesfully (from within Evolution) sent test email header: "X-Mailer: Evolution 2.30.2 "  Wink.

Also smoothly syncs with your Google Calendar if you would like to, and as far as I know the Evolution Groupware suite can also interact with Novell Groupware and Microsoft Exchange being two frequently used suites at working places.
