Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Evolution without a doubt.. I just love all the great features especially the summary page to get all my news headlines. The only downside is I can't seem to figure out a good way to backup the contacts and mail.

The summary page rules.
I just had to reinstall (same distro as you) and I had my home directory backed up on cd. It saved all my contacts, mail, etc in there. If you open konqueror and choose view, then check show hidden files you should see your evolution folder there. Having backed up the home directory really saved everything other than newly installed apps. All my mozilla settings, bookmarks, kde settings...
I also tried many emailclients on linux. okay, also on windows. When i used windows, pegasus was my client. Unfortunnately there is no pegasus for linux. (at least not one of the latest versions)
i've tried evolution, pine, mozilla mail, thunderbird, kmail, sylpheed, balsa.
I liked evolution, sylpheed and thunderbird where my favourites.
Sylpheed is nice and clean, starts up very fast, and doesn't use much resources. but it is too basic for me.
evolution is great with a lot of features, great contact management a scheduler, agenda, etc..
although thunderbird is not my favourite, because it uses a lot of memory (about 20 mb for the client only, and 2 mb per open mail, even if that email is empty) i stick to that. Why? because it is a multi platform program, it's a program that will stay and will be improved a lot (i think) and i personally like the interface.
but... it's all very personal i guess. btw, why is your cd burner not working?
Lame question, I know... but is it possible to use an email program to send/receive from my hotmail account? I still use a hotmail account sometimes, and despite Outlook (not even Outlook Express, as far as I know) nothing can be configured with hotmail... Any ideas?
I also use Thunderbird, either on Linux or Windows (when I've forced to...)
Just what I was afraid of . Well, I kinda thought so. Btw, I messed up there, where I wrote Outlook, I meant Outlook Express and where it was Outlook Express, I meant Outlook ghehe.
An alternative thing to do should be to create an account into another e-mail server which has can redirect your hotmail(s) to it and can be used with an e-mail client. I know only one which does it (www.pop.com.br). It's free, but it's Brazilian, so you need to know portuguese to use it .
