At the moment, I am using Mozilla 0.9.9 and it is slow,too; but it seems
to work reliably.
I am really quite fond of pine which you can get from the University of
Washington. It is VT-100 style, very fast, reliable as hell. I usually
go through my mail once in pine and get rid of the SPAM and then go back
through the remaining mail with Mozilla.
I'd really like to know in particular why you don't like kmail. Thank you.

Personally, I'm a big Mutt fan, but I like powerful tools that use their
resources pretty responsibly; GUI interfaces are optional. (Mutt's a
console-mode-only mail app.)
Most everyone you ask will mention their own pet choice. You'll find this
also tends to extend to everything in the Linux world.

Hi fellow linuxers,
hope this is not the wrong place to ask this - if it is, just ignore me or
give back a flame that's worth a giggle or two ...,;-)
1. the setting
gpg (GnuPG) 1.2.1 (also tried 1.0.4)
Ximian evolution 1.1.2 Beta 2 (also tried 1.0.8 final)
2. the problem
I am trying to encrypt to a public key that is somewhat special, in that
it has two User-IDs, one of which does *not* contain an email address,
uid John Doe
sub 4096g/G8456233 2002-08-18 [expires: 2004-08-18]
For KMail this is no problem: If the message is addressed to the exact UID
KMail is unsure about the key to encrypt to, it simply brings up a
Ximian evolution on the other hand seems to pass something different to
gpg, and as a consequence, in the process of encrypting a message to such
a key, I get an error message back saying that gpg "can't find a valid
recipient". Even typing the recipients exact user-ID does not help.
3. what I have tried
I did a regular expression search in the config files (located in
~/evolution/ ) for terms like 'gpg', but didn't find any clues.
I have tried to 'strace -ff -v -o debug.pid evolution' but this didn't
produce any useful output (e.g. the options that gpg is called up with)
4. the question
What else could I do, or where else could I look in order to find out what
evolution does differently with gpg ?
I really like evolution as it is some of the best integrated solutions,
but without working gpg integration it is useless for me.
Thanks in advance for any helpful comments !
