Ticket #206 (closed Feature: wontfix)
Close, but no cigar yet

I live most of my life in WinXP, but also use Kubuntu and Fedora. My quest has been for something compatible with, and superior to, MS Outlook which will work with IMAP and POP3 servers. I've been using Mozilla Thunderbird with which I have a love/hate relationship. On Linux platforms, I use mostly Evolution, but also KMail. At work, I have to use MS Outlook and Exchange. My server runs Debian Linux, where I use IMAP, but I also have email accounts on POP3 systems. My wireless phone uses Windows Mobile and MS ActiveSync?.
I'm very impressed with Mulberry, but it lacks a few key things I need:
- Import/export Outlook contacts (even better would be to work with ActiveSync?).
- Synchronize with Outlook calendar and tasks.
- Actually display graphic content if the user wants it.
Free is nice, but I'd be willing to pay real money for such a beast. My Thunderbird local mail folders are huge and importing them into other email clients typically causes them to die a horrible death. Before I found Mulberry, Evolution for Windows was my best hope, but it's slow and tends to crash a lot. What I really want is an Outlook-compatible mail client with calendar that offers versions for all the platforms I use (OK, I don't expect it to run on my mobile phone, but I do need to be able to synchronize it).
Is there any chance that Mulberry will evolve into what I need? It's already close.
