Using Email

Dozens of email programs are available for Linux. This chapter focuses on KMail, which is the email component of Kontact, but Chapter 12 briefly covers two other popular email programs—Evolution, another Outlook work-alike, and Thunderbird, a good replacement for Outlook Express that runs on Windows and Mac OS X in addition to Linux.

To start KMail, click the Kontact icon on your kicker panel, and then click the Mail shortcut from inside Kontact. Alternatively, you can go to K Menu Surf the Internet Read and send e-mail.

KMail vs. Kontact

When I refer to KMail, I’m talking about the email component of Kontact as well as the standalone KMail email program. The programs are identical in the way they operate and in their appearance, with the exception that standalone KMail does not have the shortcut bar along the left side.
