   thanks for the vote. 
   i like plain old mail (CLI, works fine), but 
i'm trying to learn how to use evolution with 
my cellphone, hoping to get hip to the "we 
gotta have outlook" issue that seems one of the 
main resistance points small businesses have to 
switching to linux. 
   so far i've just gotten mail and then run 
off to do chores. in a couple of weeks i'll 
have time to try to integrate evolution features 
(e.g. calendar) with my phone.
