*BLEH*, gnome bloat. Everyone knows that Evolution is a blatant
Outlook clone, and it shows:

Need to get 14.4MB of archives. After unpacking 46.2MB will be used.

Besides, do you *really* want calendaring and email in the same
program for some obscure reason other than that's how MS does it?

Try sylpheed, it's pretty decent if you must use a GUI mail client.
Not to mention that it's wicked fast, which makes mutt freaks like me
jealous.
