How To Configure Evolution Mail

[blip.tv ?posts_id=4027556&dest=-1]

In this Ubuntu Video Tutorial we will be looking at Ubuntu’s default mail and calendar client. Specifically we will be looking at configuring an Email account in it. Evolution features a wizard designed to ease the process of setting up an account. As of late, there have been significant improvements in Evolution but we won’t be seeing them until the release of Maverick Meerkat. Evolution provides a well rounded if not user friendly experience. I would rate it as a 4 out of 5 as Mail clients go. Why would I rate it so, well with webmail becoming so popular, and standard Email slowing in use, there is lessened need outside of Businesses. Many people may find mail clients useful if they need to access many email accounts on different networks, but thin clients from such products as Mozilla Prism, and the Adobe Air app GeeMail, there really isn’t a segnificant need for them, it is becoming a purely aesthetic comparison.

    Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

      I don’t know what you mean by WYSIWYG editors but I can tell you wordpress.com com is a great place to start a blog. You can’t put advertising in it but for the sake of blogging it is wonderful and very streamlined. You don’t have to use HTML editing much at all. I rarely do ever. When posting a link in a comment you might need to know some basic html code. Really not that hard.
