E-mail and Internet Success

Inspired by my previous day's success, I fired up the computer and began looking at Ximian Evolution (now distributed by Novell) for my e-mail. I used Netscape 7.1 for my e-mail and newsgroup access, so I figured that Mozilla's web and e-mail clients were similar. Evolution looked more like Outlook, so I decided to give it a shot. To begin with, I set it up to leave a copy of the e-mail on the server, in case things didn't work. It worked very well - it's got a nice interface. I also downloaded copies of all the pages on my web site, and modified the Sunday School prayer list using GEdit. I also did some other exploring around other features of the operating system and desktop environment.

I was also able to play an Ogg Vorbis audio clip using XMMS, a WinAmp clone included with WBEL. Tomorrow, I'll be trying to send an e-mail to everyone in the Sunday School class, and get DVD video working.
