First, this is the wrong place - you should bug the Evolution developers
(Ximian) about their product on non-Debian systems.  ;-)

Second, no, it definitely will not work, because Evolution is not just
GTK based, it is GNOME based, and the required GNOME libraries do not
run on Windows.  On the upside, if you're using Windows, you should
already have Outlook[ Express], yes?  Or you could use the Mozilla
mailer, which is also rather nice.
