LinuxToday.com.au: Sick of Waiting for the Evolution? Try Kmail

"Yes, so Evolution is coming. So is Christmas. Evolution, bythe makers and shakers of Helixcode, is currently at version 0.3, and while each week sees Evolution vastly improved from the previous, it's going to be a while before this admirable project can stand on it's own two feet and call itself an email client."

"In the meantime, you own a small business, and you need a small, robust email client which you can depend to work for you, day in, day out, come hail, stormy weather and network outages. You don't have a lot of RAM, and you have a limited amount of patience with which to mess around with email clients trying to find the right one for your Linux boxes at work. (This is starting to find like a bad RPG game - your next task is to find the gold at the end of the rainbow)"

"So we have Kmail. Kmail is an email client which has received very little attention in the press, but is one of the sturdiest little email clients out there for Linux, and unless you're willing to delve into the command line worlds of Pine and MH, there aren't that many clients out there which old regular Joe Citizen would be willing to use. In fact, Kmail is the ideal solution for small businesses, and conveniently comes bundled with most major Linux distributions, included in KDE 1.1.2, and the soon to be KDE 2."
