evolution - groupware suite for GNOME containing e-mail, calendar, addressbook, to-do list and memo tools
evolution [OPTIONS] [MAILTO]
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:email@example.com`. This will open a new composer window with an empty e-mail to `firstname.lastname@example.org`. More advanced expressions are also suppported, but should conform to RFC 2368. For a more detailed explanation of Evolution, please see the Help menu.
-?, --help Show a help message listing all the options and their meanings. --usage Show a brief help message listing the names of the options only. -c, --component=COMPONENT Start Evolution by activating the desired component. COMPONENT is one of `mail', `calendar', `contacts', `tasks', `memos'. --offline Start in offline mode. --online Start in online mode. --force-shutdown Forcibly shut down all Evolution components. --force-migrate Forcibly re-migrate from Evolution 1.4. --debug=FILE Send the debugging output of all components to FILE. --disable-eplugin Disable loading of any plugins.

Evolution was originally developed by the company Ximian, now a part of Novell. Evolution is now part of GNOME, and many people have touched the code. See the "About" item in the "Help" menu for a list. This manual page was originally written by Lars Wirzenius for the Debian system.
