Subject: [gentoo-user] Email clients - what can replace Evolution?
Date: Wed, 28 Feb 2007 05:09:22
1 Hi all,
2 I've got a machine that will no longer run Evolution. For whatever
3 reason all versions of Evolution in Portage crash. I cannot as of yet
4 get a backtrace to determine why. Even if I could a fast solution
5 would depend on other folks seeing what's wrong and telling me how to
6 fix it by recompiling some library or something. I cannot be sure if
7 or even when that might happen so my user needs to move on. He's been
8 without access to his email for about 10 days and is fed up waiting
9 for me to fix it.
11 The question is how to move forward. Is there any other Linux email
12 client that can pick up where Evolution has failed him? I know nothing
13 about how Evolution stores mail, contact lists, etc. so I don't know
14 what he might be able to use. What is the KDE mail client? Can
15 Thunderbird look at Evolution files?
17 I spent some time going through the online Portage database but
18 nothing seemed obvious so I hoped to hear about an app to try out
19 here.
21 In parallel I can try something like emerge -e world. Maybe I'll
22 get lucky? ;-)
24 Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.
26 Cheers,
27 Mark
