Evolution is an email, calendaring, and collaboration tool that is available from Novell, Inc. (See http://www.novell.com/products/desktop/features/evolution.html.)
Novell Evolution embraces mail, calendar, and address book standards to ease data sharing. Supported mail protocols include IMAP, POP, SMTP, and Authenticated SMTP, as well as Microsoft Exchange 2000 and 2003 and Novell GroupWise. iCalendar support enables users in disparate collaboration servers to share meeting information, publish this information, and subscribe to calendars published on the Web (webcal). Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) support enables users to access their existing company address books. Users can also share contact information by using vCard message attachments.
ZENworks provides a policy that enables administrators to configure Evolution clients on the managed devices. Configure settings by checking or unchecking the corresponding check box next to the setting. When a check box is selected, that component is activated and the user is unable to change that option. The following is a list of configurable settings of the Evolution policy:
Apply filters to new messages options
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) option
Email server authentication method
Automatically check for new mail option
Send and draft mail folder locations
