I use Evolution at work for that reason -- access to the Exchange server
(for calendaring as well as e-mail).  I agree that Evolution beats the
alternatives listed above, but every day I'm frustrated by a handful of
bugs, like when it quietly stops fetching (or displaying?) new mail, or
when I want to move a message to a different folder while a window
displaying that message is open (in version 2.8.1, it switches the
message displayed in that window to some other message in the current
folder; in some previous versions, that message window would go blank).
