Love Thunderbird, but also need to manage your schedule?
Do it from within our popular email client.

a full PIM suite is absolutely essential, and thunderbird simply isn't that.

your two only choices are evolution and Kontact.

when i ran an engineering development company i used suse on my laptop. i started with thunderbird because i was used to it under a previous windows laptop, but i quickly found that kontact was a life-saver.

given that sabayon is KDE centric i would opt for kontact rather than evolution.


well, here in office we r all using thunderbird except some co-worker with outlook on his laptop .. never had problems

yes, it is very nice for email, and yes you can get a calender extension.

but it does not yet have full groupware integration, and it is not a full PIM suite.

Just tried to install Lightning, (a plug-in for Thunderbird), unfortunately it doesn't support x64 yet :cry: So I'm running Sunbird as a seperate app :? What I really miss, is Microsoft office 2007 :lol: Suppose I can always borrow my wife's pc, if I'm missing it too much :shock:

I currently use Thunderbird and will probably use it for some time. I would like to try Kmail/Kontact in more detail, but it has issues with my IMAP servers.

After some Googling (thanks wolfden), found what I was after, now have the Lightning x86-64 add-on in TB :D Here's the link if anyone wants it http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla ... 3/contrib/

Simply select the 'lightning-0.3.linux-x86_64-gcc3.xpi' & 'save target as...' & install from there!

My favorite email program is Claws-Mail, it's fast, easy to use and highly configurable. So obviously it would be great, if it was supported, but seeing I'm the only so far voting for "other" I can also live with just emerging it after the install. :)
