I need an email program of some sort to fetch my email from a POP. I was using Evaluation before, but is there a better program that doesn't have all the useless junk like calendaring, meeting scheduling, stuff i never use in it?

Lol, no reason to go through all that MTA/MUA crap just to read mail.

Check out Mozilla Mail or Thunderbird (a standalone version). They are basically all mail, not lots of other junk.

And its "Evolution", not "evaluation".
