nice! i'm pretty excited for 3.1, prolly more so than fbsd 5.0... ;)

can i use the Exchange plugin without the Kolab server? my company uses MS
Exchange, as do most companies out there, sadly. I just need be able to get
the addressbook and calendar and request/accept meetings, etc... like what
Ximian Connector can do.

right now I got RH8 on my work machine, but Connector doesnt even work on
RH8, so I have to run Evo off another coworker's box to use it, and I still
havent been able to sync my palm coz it's a PITA to sync over ppp to a remote
machine running linux/evolution/pilot-link/gnome-pilot... (not even sure if
that's possible actually). anyway, i highly prefer being able to just run
fbsd here, for some reason rh8 is slow as hell and i have to reboot at least
once a week. could be XFree86 with xinerama though, but rh8 is bloated
