I use Evolution and I like the calendar, tasks and contacts options I
have. I especially like the summary page and the whole thing looks good
with the GTK theme I have but it isn't everyone's up of tea when you
just want a simple e-mail client. However, backing your evolution files
up is another matter and restoring them generally isn't just a case of
copying your evolution directory back to your user directory. I find you
have to import all of your mbox, ics files etc. back for each particular
folder in a careful manner.
Using Evolution in business is a good idea especially with the Exchange
access you can buy and add on (I personally believe anyone who uses
Exchange just to run an e-mail server is, to be polite, an idiot, but
there you go) but you need to gain a certain amount of experience with
backup and restore issues.
I don't think you can import mbox files within kmail (surely just a
matter of adding an import filter) but you will also need to import ics
files for tasks, contacts etc. Any idea about adding on these features
to KMail? If KMail had more of Evolution's features (summary, integrated
tasks and contacts etc) that you could perhaps turn off if you wanted a
more basic e-mail client then I would definitely switch.
