I can't say that I've noticed it crashing a lot. Or even crashing at
all, since about the Fedora 9 era.
I wish. Evo is my main MUA (and I only use it for mail). It does crash
and hang a lot less than it used to but I couldn't in all honesty say it
never happens. In fact the latest update just segfaulted twice in a
couple of hours (evolution-2.28.3-1.fc12.x86_64).
You must not use it with Exchange. The exchange OWA connector crashes
every time I restart evolution. The MAPI connector is barely usable at
this point--though it's improving slowly. And nothing about Evo is
compatible with Exchange 2007 yet. And the whole thing does crash
occasionally, just for kicks, it seems.
Fortunately I don't have that problem. I don't use Exchange, have never
used Exchange, and would in fact find it hard to think of anyone I know
personally who uses Exchange. I realize not everyone is so lucky.
