Korean Character Set


My wife is Korean and am trying to set up for her to exchange email in Korean. Have a dual keyboard and initially I will be using Fedora Core 5.

Have looked through Evolution manual but so far have not been able to establish whether it can handle the Korean character set, if not is there a Linux email agent which does?

Answering my own post for others info.

I take delivery of a new machine tomorrow and was waiting to set up email on it. But in the meantime I have set it (Fedora Core 5) up on my current machine and found that Evolution appears to handle a full range of charsets (Korean included).

Phew !! saves me having to worry about dual-booting and possibly having to setup up Windows share.

In general, when you go to Preferences -> Language support, and you select the language of your choice, distros will install/setup all necessary fonts, keyboard layouts etc. I use CAPS lock key to toggle between keyboard layouts.
