Re:Migrating from Evolution to Thunderbird!

FWIW, I'm migrating my wife right now from Evolution to Thunderbird because she's switching off of Linux to Windows. She's been satisfied with Linux as a desktop for years, mainly because Evolution was so far ahead of any other mail client out there. However, years of fighting and generally losing with anything multimedia related have taken their toll, especially trying to get Audible books into her iPod (this involves VMWare and a few hours of struggle). Evolution 2.0 was the last nail in the coffin. Attachment forwarding is broken by design, an extremely annoying message duplication bug has cropped up, and the forced SpamAssassin integration has brought her older laptop to its knees (SA is running on the server, thank you very much). It's a sad day around here.
