I use Gmail as a main mail account, and I just installed Ubuntu 8.10 on a new computer so this is a fresh start.
First of all, I tried using Outlook back in Windows about 5 years ago but I didn't get it. Then when I first started Ubuntu in around September I thought "now's the time, I'm going to get Evolution working- it shouldn't be hard. Most things in Ubuntu er pretty straight-forward" (this was back when I was using hotmail). I didn't get that to work either- so that is why I ask:
How on earth do I get Evolution to work? The place where I always stop at is the "Server type". <noob warning>
Is this something you have to pay for? Which one do I use if I'm using Gmail?
I tried the user manual in Ubuntu but it didn't help at all, could someone please help me so I don't have to go 5 years again without a mail application.
