Evolution - Microsoft ™ Outlook option for Linux


Evolution (former Novell Evolution and Ximian Evolution, prior to Novell's acquisition of Ximian 2003, is the official GNOME email client.

It has been an official part of GNOME since Evolution 2.0 joined the GNOME 2.8 release since September 2004.

Evolution combines email, address book, calendar, task list and listing features similar to Microsoft ™ Outlook.

Its user interface and functionality are similar to Microsoft Outlook ™, but Evolution is free software licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (LGPL).

Support for multiple languages.

Seahorse is a Linux application that implements the OpenPGP standard in Evolution. With this software you can manage your keys and use cryptographic functions for files and texts. In conjunction with the Evolution email client, you can also use the encryption features for your communication.

Of course, because there should be some idea of encrypting your mail, your contacts or friends need to do the same and you need to exchange keys to read each other's messages.

If you want to know which version is available in Debian's repository, type the following command:

apt-cache policy evolution

Press Enter.

How to install:

sudo apt-get install evolution

Press Enter.
