It integrates better into the KDE desktop, feels much MUCH faster than
Evolution, has a lot more options to waste time on, has a very functional
newsreader, integrates perfectly with the desktop (number of messages
received on the notification area) and generally just feels like it's more
than a very good outlook clone. There are things I didn't like as well, like
the keyboard shortcuts being weird to get used to coming from outlook, the
red colour for unread messages and some other minor gripes but generally I
think the KDE team did a very good team of integrating previously separate
apps.
