Evolution on Windows … interesting

I ran across Evolution on Windows this week, it’s interesting. Installed, imported contacts, and about 1.5 gig of email and so far so good. The email import was not easy as I had to take the mbox files, bring them into Evo on Linux then copy the files to the Windows box. Importing on Windows consistently crashed if more than 1500 emails were in the folder.

Nice thing is if it doesn’t work I can just take the mbox files back to Thunderbird.

Update: Sept. 7 It was a fun week with Evo on Windows. The UI and functionality is pretty much identical to Linux however it is slower which is to be expected. Only a couple crashes but it’s time to go back to Thunderbird.
