Re: [PLUG] good linux mail clients

My requirements for business and personal were to sync email, calendar, address books, and
todo's across my Android phone, Android Tablet and Ubuntu laptop.   As far as I have
found the only working solution is Zimbra - ( sorry I'm not putting my business on Gmail )
All these discussions ignore calendar and address books.   Don't people need
these on all their devices ?
