Ok, thx for the input.. Doesn't really sound too promising but I'll do some
reading and see what I do...
If I install the version in Ubuntu 16, version 3.18.x, what am I missing? Will
it work ok as an IMAP and Exchange MUA?
Fedora would have been a better option, the problem is that only the following
are supported by the Horizon client: Ubuntu x64 12.04, 14.04, and
16.04, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.8, 6.9, 7.2, 7.3, and 7.4 and SUSE
Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) 12 SP2. And to be able to work from remote I
need a distro where this client works more or less 100%. I bought this laptop
so I could leave my Windows PC from work at work.. :)
