joacimtried setting up mutt again on my laptop with crux, but ive been too lazy10:01
joacimwill probably try to make a port of evolution if i move my desktop back to crux =)10:01
frinnsthave fun creating its dependencies :)10:02
joacimi think the only thing missing from crux is gnome-desktop10:05
joacimlooks like the rest is already in opt or contrib, and some i can steal from mate10:06
joacim"gnome-desktop support is optional with --enable-gnome-desktop"10:06
joacimmaybe it can be built on a plain opt/contrib system10:06

ryuofrinnst: just ask the magic 8ball. it'll say "outlook not so good". =p10:44
joacimoutlook is pretty ok if you dont ever store anything locally10:46
joacimbut, there is always this one customer that shows up with emails from 1998, and he uses pop310:47
joacimwith the default setting in outlook to delete emails older than 14 days from the server10:47
