Evolution provides integrated mail, address book and calendaring functionality to users of the GNOME desktop. Its user interface and feature set are similar to Microsoft Outlook.
Evolution makes the tasks of storing, organizing, and retrieving your personal information easy, so you can work and communicate more effectively with others. It’s a highly developed groupware program, considered by many to be an integral part of the Internet-connected desktop.
Using gnome-pilot, it can be synchronized with Palm Pilot devices, and OpenSync also enables synchronization with mobile telephones and other PDAs.
