KDE Receives Improved Gmail Integration
Phoronix: KDE Receives Improved Gmail Integration
Using KMail and Gmail together? Some nice improvements are ahead...
Pretty cool. I wonder if there has been much progress made on Exchange support, as this is still very lacking/painful on Linux (last I checked), but extremely important for corporate adoption of Linux on desktops.
If you have access to an exchange server to try it out, test Evolution. I know the GNOME guys were working pretty hard on bringing Evolution's Exchange support up to par.

I guess its on my laundry list of contributions to make when I have the time (and am not posting on phoronix all evening...)
Alex Fiestas has done some work on "web/online accounts" as a centralized service and IIRC someone has ported the Facebook Akonadi resource to use it as an example.
As for handling Google's other data options, someone suggested on Dan's blog that he could look into creating a combined resource and he agreed that this sounded like a good idea for a future version.
Great to know someones looking into it!
I tested a couple of solutions for exchange with OWA use last fall - Evolution was unusable with exchange (or any other mail server for that matter - it crashed like crazy), Thunderbird with ExQuilla turned out to be the best option, but that plugin is commercial.
