GNOME mailer, calender, contact manager, PIM The Evolution mailer supports POP, IMAP, SMTP, and other standards, and can decrypt PGP and GPG messages. You can have multiple POP and IMAP servers, with separate email identities for multiple accounts. You can reorganize, group, and sort data by clicking and dragging, and build virtual folders to select mail meeting set criteria. Vfolders update automatically to include new mail. The interface is based on the GtkHTML library; this allows quick formatting and display of simple data. Plug-in Bonobo components handle more complicated data like audio, video, or PDF, which can be embedded into the message display window. The GtkHTML editor widget creates RTF or plain text messages. The composer communicates with the contact manager to select mail recipients. The calendar allows distributed scheduling and synchs with PalmOS-based organizers. The user interface views and modifies the calendar; a server monitors calendar entries, pops up reminder windows, and exports NTML data for Web publishing. The contact manager prints in many formats and synchronizes with the Palm OS. Its front-end user interface and back-end server makes it accessible from many applications. The local server can talk to remote servers to maintain shareable databases.
