default mail client



I am writing this mail as a long time Fedora user, not so much as a Fedora developer, so feel free to flame away, etc: though I am not really trying to start painful flame-war here...

For a long time (actually as long as I can remember;) I wondered why Evolution was our default Mail application (MUA). I was a long time user of Emacs MUAs, so I feel my background is fairly neutral - but I have never been able to use Evolution for long. These days I use Thunderbird since alas I gradually found Emacs too slow for imap. I am not married to Thunderbird but it mostly does what I want it and it is pretty stable at least.

So what are the arguments for keeping Evolution as the default Mail application in Fedora? This question seems particularly relevant now with things like the Lightning calendar extension and the launch of Mozilla Messaging. Evolution is different enough from regular GNOME applications to be basically a different platform, and from the development point of view it is expensive to have another platform to maintain.
