Corrected Evolution Homepage Link
I like this program a lot. I used KMail and KDE for the better part of two years, and made the switch to Evolution at the same time I switched environments to GNOME. I haven't regretted it at all, especially now that I know everything it's capable of. Well done!

Yep, 1.4 was much nicer. I think you can blame Novell for version 2?
So how do I uninstall V2 without losing the data?

I found it after som digging.

This is also a program I love(d) - there was really no other mail client to compare with it: it had a nice summary page where you could see news, weather conditions and of course if there was any new mail. In 2.0.0. they decided to kill this, and now it's a "regular" e-mail client - doesn't look much different from the others. Fortunately, I was able to uninstall the new version (hint: choose to keep the old data) and to go back to 1.4
Still, it's a shame.
Where's their bugzilla currently? I couldn't find it on the product page on Novell's website.

This, and the fact that the 'automatic install' rolls merrily along until it blows up leaving my entire system in a very hosed state, places this software firmly in the catagory of crapola-ware. Ain't 'proprietary open-sores' great?
Sorry I ever strayed Sylpheed. Please take me back!
Well it is possible, first import them in your Mozilla (Windows Version) Mail client. Then copy the new MBOX file with the emails to your linux partition and import them into Evolution... worked for me!

the mandrake 9.1 distro includes 1.2.2
which has a couple of problems with the calendar and text editor (message) modules crashing occasionally, but the most frustrating thing is after creating contact lists any messages composed using a contact list in the to field wont be sent unless you deselect the contact list and individually select the recipients. :) and then reporting a bug doesnt work because a normal install of mandrake doesnt install bug-buddy! That aside its looks good, supports newsfeeds from important places like Freshmeat & slashdot, hmm well there's another nuisance you cant invite a contact list/group to a meeting....
