Re: Outlook for Linux

Evolution is an okay replacement. Try:
Code:
$ sudo dnf install evolution-ews evolution-help evolution-mapi evolution-pst evolution-rss
That should be enough to get you connected to a Microsoft Exchange server. This link has some pretty good instructions on connecting to the server:

Re: Outlook for Linux

To paraphrase Bohemian Rhapsody - Thunderbird and Lightning, hardly very frightening...

BTW, Thunderbird ships with Lightning (calendar) as standard these days.

It depends whether or not you need full exchange functionality or not. For the average user TB will suffice. It supports Hotmail/Outlook.com/Live Mail over IMAP or POP

Re: Outlook for Linux

I have an outlook.com account, among others. That's probably not what the OP is asking about, but I have to say I've found Evolution -- multiple versions on multiple distributions -- unusable with outlook.com's IMAP/SMTP interface. It's a constant stream of time outs, connection failures, stalling, and lockups. No other mail client I've tried -- Thunderbird, Claws, Sylpheed or Geary -- has these problems.

I'm also no fan of Evolution, however, it integrates into Exchange better than anything else I have found on Linux. In addition to mail and calendar, it supports contacts, tasks, and notes.

If tight Exchange integration isn't a requirement, my recommendation would also be Thunderbird.

Yeah, I use Thunderbird. Seems like no one is interested in mail clients these days, and that includes Mozilla. I imagine they think we're all either using Exchange in a corporate setting or web mail at home.
