Evolution fails under 64-bit Win7

Anyone successful at getting Evolution email client [similar to Outlook] to run under 64-bit Ultimate? The install appeared to go swell, but on firstrun it failed during the initial mail account setup.

I didn't know they had ported this to Windows but from what I am reading, many folks who tried it on XP and Win7 have had a lot of problems, many similar to yours. And sadly, they don't list system requirement only saying,

And sadly too, there is no help or forums on the DIP Consultants Website and the Contact Us links on both the top and bottom don't work. Makes you wonder if support for Evolution for Windows is being taken seriously. You might consider another product.

I've used Outlook since Outlook 97 and have recently migrated to Outlook 2007 and I like it. But I also use MailWasher Pro as my spamblocker so that weeds out most of mail before it reaches Outlook.

I agree. I think it works quite well for Linux but wouldn't bother with it on Windows.
