I experiensed a few lockups...but not very often. My only real complaint
is how long it takes to open a mail with a jpeg or swf attachment. The 
window wont even show the text contents of the mail for a few seconds.

other note- I just upgraded to Evolution 1.2.1. I use the ximian
desktop and red carpet. So i just used red carpet to update and WOW it
updated gnome on my 7.3 box with all kinds of great stuff. Like a start
up program manger for x that is really nice 
 (pic )
and a controle panel with nice access to alot of stuff. If you run gnome
and rh7.3 for your desktop...Ximian Gnome might have something for you

Now if I could just get that spell check to work :)
