Search much?

Seriously though, Ximian Evolution is what you are looking for. Go to Novell's site and you can find it there.

Yes. Kontact, of which KOrganizer is a part, has come a long way and is now a solid product, but I still prefer Evolution. Perhaps it is just because there are less crazy colors, but the layout is more pleasant. Actually, I prefer the not-so-fresh 1.4.6 version.

there are methods of syncing a WINCE (your pda is Wince, right?) pda to Linux, but from what i understand it won't work through the USB port... and it is kind of a pain to get working right....

I tell you guys what would be nice , as i am still using windows but have made a start to imgrate to Linux ie i am now using Open Offce instead of Microsoft office on windows system so i can get use to it prior moving to linux this will make life a lot easy.


also i am now using Mozila browser rather than IE and found that Mozlia is far better than internet explore.

the next stage is to move my email client to something that can be use in Linux does this Evolution. work on windows system or Korangniser .

once again the idea is to get to know the software first then move to linux system. beleive me this will make it easer for me.

I am running on my PDA Pocket 2003 via uSB would this work in Linux system.


your help and respond would be much helpful and appreciated

Evolution has not yet been ported to Windows, though I read recently they were making steps to do just that..

Thunderbird in Win

Get Thunderbird. Its awesome! It was voted as email client of the year 2004. AND it has been successfully ported to Windows. You can easily find its Windows version online. Do a little search. Hope this helps you Waheed. And I'm sure your migration to Linux is a wonderful journey. Check out "The Table of Windows equivalents in Linux " online. I feel Linux is THE BEST OS and Windows is piece of garbage

Take care
Coolblue

That would be a way to do it - T-Bird or MozillaMail with the calendar extension. That would be cross-platform. Easy to sync you address books and calendar data, if you are dual-booting, but you will probably have to download the messages on both systems.
