The Most Popular Email Clients On Fedora Linux
Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 21 December 2015 at 08:10 AM EST. 28 Comments
Jiri Eischmann of Red Hat's desktop team recently carried out a survey asking Fedora users what they use as their email client.

Ignoring those using a web-based email client, Eischmann found that Thunderbird was by far the most popular desktop application for email. Following noticeably behind in both of his polls was GNOME's Evolution software. Geary, KMail, and Mutt were other alternatives with much smaller market-share on Fedora.

It's hardly surprising that Thunderbird is the most popular e-mail client for Fedora users, which likely can be said for the entire Linux desktop landscape as well. While many don't like Evolution for being slow and outdated with not many investing in this GNOME mail application, it continues to support Microsoft Exchange the best and has some other features that make it used by a number of people.

More details on the Fedora mail client survey can be found via Jiri's blog post.
