Actually I find them good programs, the only thing that really su**s it's that mail.app doesn't have a decent message threading!!!! Apple developers of you hear me add a proper threading to mail.app please!!!

I really like mail.app and its somewhat decent IMAP support. Thunderbird's IMAP is even better. Evolution always gave me a bit of trouble in that respect, although I'd still love a native Evolution port to be able to connect to those pesky Exchange servers when the need arises.

Imap support in mail.app it's also somewhat odd because instead of showing the imap folders in one tree like TB, it shows:
the inbox under the main inbox tree and the other folders sparse in the inbox if you add a single account, grouping them under the account name only if you add two or more imap accounts ;)

What exactly is wrong with Mail.app's threading? It has always worked pretty well for me. Is there something that Evolution does that is different? If so what? I think Mail.app was the first mail app that I saw that used threading...of course I was an Outlook user on XP at the time Mail.app came out with threading so I may have overlooked something.

As far as the nativeness goes, I wonder if Evolution will follow the same route as OO.o went with NeoOffice (http://www.neooffice.org/) in that a separate product will be based on the original to get the native windowing going.

I don't really see a problem with Mail.app's threading. I actually like it as a mail client. As I think about it now... it might be better to have an email client, addressbook, and calendar as separate programs... instead of one HUGE app to do it "all"

thread view it's simply non-existent, when you choose thread view it simply groups messages
