So, I have now made the switch to Linux. I'm trying out SuSE here, with Win98 loaded on a seperate partition so that WINE works like it should. It looks like this may be able to happen. My favorite email client was never ported to Linux (and likely never will be) so I either have to bite it and start using one of the linux ones, or I'll just run it through WINE -- I've not fully decided which yet.

Everything seems to work like it should, so far. Then again, this is just the first few hours. Wait a week and I may be singing a different tune then.

Which email client is this - and how well is it working under (I assume) vanilla-WINE?

I'm running Word / Excel / Powerpoint / Access (required for work) from Codeweavers' Crossover Office -- and that's running quite well. They claim that Codeweavers will run Outlook seemlessly too. For email I'm using Evolution -- which seems to work ok. Havent tried too many others - like Eudora or Pegasus.

(though if you ask half of the alphas at the various linux user groups in town - then mutt feeding to sendmail/fetchmail is the OOOOONLY way to fly ... )

Calypso was my windows email client. I've used Eudora, Outlook, Pegasus, and Netscape as well. Calypso was by far the best one out there.

I've not yet gotten my mailbox extracted from the ghost image I made of my HDD before I switched. I'll be tackling that tomorrow. I expect it to work fine, since Calypso is behaving like it should so far.

I'm looking at getting that plugin (depending on cost) for evolution to connect to our exchange server, so I can get my calendaring back up and running.

I'm trying to avoid using crossover office, and go with OpenOffice instead for those purposes (if possible).
