What’s the big difference, I have always used Thunderbird in windows. But I have always seen Evolution installed on linux Distros is there a reason for this? Is one better than the other? or does it really matter?
Evolution is the standard with Gnome desktops usually. I believe Evolution is an official Gnome app.

Stability wise, Thunderbird is more stable. Evolution works
better than it used to, but still crashes and hangs up a lot.
If you need a client that HAS to connect to an Exchange server,
then Evolution is your ONLY choice… but even so, I haven’t
seen Evolution work that way with any version later than
the one that came with openSUSE 10.2.
Evolution is very Outlook-ish.
Thunderbird does well with mail and newsgroups… but
doesn’t have a good integrated calendar (see the
Lightning add on for that).
Exchange? I only use pop servers.
Thread moved to Looking For Something?
Thunderbird is just fine if you work with standard Internet protocol servers. It’s simpler than Evolution and probably more reliable for that. And it has a host of add-ons if you want frills.
evolution also is a lot bigger size wise.
