       evolution  -  groupware  suite  for  GNOME containing e-mail, calendar,
       addressbook, to-do list and memo tools


       evolution [OPTIONS] [MAILTO]


       This manual page briefly introduces the evolution  command.   Evolution
       is  a  graphical  groupware suite, a single application for reading and
       sending e-mail and for managing calendars, address books, notes,  to-do
       lists and memos.  It is written for the GNOME graphical desktop.

       An  optional MAILTO expression can be specified, typically invoked from
       another    application.    An    example    MAILTO    expression     is
       ``.  This  will  open  a new composer window
       with  an  empty  e-mail  to   ``.   More   advanced
       expressions are also suppported, but should conform to RFC 2368.

       For a more detailed explanation of Evolution, please see the Help menu.

       Evolution was originally developed by the company Ximian, now a part of
       Novell.   Evolution  is now part of GNOME, and many people have touched
       the code.  See the "About" item in the "Help" menu for a list.
