Works well with OWA, fast and stable enoug on (X)ubuntu 12.04. However if you want Exchange connection with Exchange 2k/2k3 you can use DavMail as IMAP/POP3/SMTP relay between OWA and any email client.

Convenient, less bugged than the other open source alternatives. Integrates perfectly with GNOME desktop.

Way better defaults than Thunderbird - doesn't try to download all emails by default, sorts emails in from top to bottom from latest to oldest, doesn't try and open things in its own web browser, doesn't have annoying Mozilla/Google service integration/telemetry.

Evolution has become the top-quality email client on Linux. Compatibility and functionality is excellent, and the message composer is by far the best of all.

Using right now on MX Linux; you'll want to choose distro carefully of course.

Windows version was never stable for several years.
Gnome project now only support Linux (I am out of my depth here) ...
the only Windows version is available from Softpedia .... but I would look elsewhere for a MS Mail client. I am using pre-Australis Thunderbird available from Sourceforge I cannot comment on "Evolution" for for other platforms ...

Other references Gnome Project
My suggestions for Thunderbird for Windows pre-Australis ...
at 74 yrs I don't know how many years I have left to adapt to Linux.
Legacy - Portable TBird pre-Australis v52.6.0
Legacy - TBird installer pre-Australis v59.0b1

The features of Evolution include mail, contacts, calendars, memos, and RSS. I would prefer just a task list app without those features.

According to AlternativeTo, Evolution runs on Linux, BSD, and GNOME, but it does not run on macOS, web, or iOS.
