    Question Email Clients for KDE 4.x

    Hi all,

    I'm setting up SUSE 11.4 for a Windows 7 laptop user who prefers Outlook 2007
    which is a full-featured email client and I'm wondering what is the "closest" suse/KDE email client I can set up to make this person feel right at home.

    There are at least three "big" email clients, all of them work of course in
    kde: Kontact, Evolution, Thunderbird.
    I would not really take a decision based on similarity, which is of course a
    very personal point of view what is similar and what not, but would base the
    decision on the special needs of that user (if there are special needs).
    So can you go a bit more into detail, what the user needs (of course email
    bt what else? calendar, exchange access??).
    From the pure similarity I would say evolution (it is a gnome application
    but I use it on my notebook for my work with kde) is closest.

    what does "full featured" mean past:

    -send and receive email and attachments
    -keep sent/received emails in folders as desired and set up by the user
    -search in sent/received mail folders
    -send/receive either html mail or plain text
    -PGP/encrypted mail in and out built in or supported
    -RSS feeds, ATOM feeds
    -POP3/IMAP4/SMTP/NNTP/LDAP2/LDAP3/EWS/IPv6
    -SSL and TLS on POP3, secure IMAP4, secure SMTP, secure NNTP, secure LDAP
    -stable, reliable, dependable, impervious to malware, viruses, etc

    well, check this out:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compari..._email_clients

    i settled on Thunderbird some years back, it does all i need...except it
    sometimes will not easily read the non-international internet standards
    meeting sends from Microsoft users...

    like, i often get an email with 20 or more attached photos _all_ having
    the same file name--how DO they do that? and, why would they do it if it
    is not to do every thing possible to NOT work with non-Microsoft email
    clients?

    There are a lot of email clients. But i think what is pointed to is more a suit.
    Outlook itself is not just an email client.

    My choice would be either Kmail/Kontakt or Evolution.
