NAME

       evolution - groupware suite for GNOME containing e-mail, calendar, addressbook, to-do list
       and memo tools

SYNOPSIS

       evolution [OPTIONS] [MAILTO]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page briefly introduces the  evolution  command.   Evolution  is  a  graphical
       groupware  suite,  a  single  application  for reading and sending e-mail and for managing
       calendars, address books, notes, to-do lists and memos.   It  is  written  for  the  GNOME
       graphical desktop.

       An   optional   MAILTO  expression  can  be  specified,  typically  invoked  from  another
       application. An example MAILTO expression is `mailto:username@example.com`. This will open
       a  new  composer  window  with  an  empty  e-mail to `username@example.com`. More advanced
       expressions are also suppported, but should conform to RFC 2368.

       For a more detailed explanation of Evolution, please see the Help menu.
