	 I recently (within the last week) made the same switch, not
	 because I had to use outlook, but because I needed to add
	 imap to the network, for our new road-warriors.

	 Anyway: the curent setup:
	 - Mail is still filtered (to files in ~/mail or ~/nsmail,
	   depending on user pref) by procmail

         - I created an imap account in evolution. 
	   Using this account, I subscribed to a number of folders,
	   the files in which the mail is filtered. 

           That's all there was to it, as far as I remember.

        One minor problem: with the 'send/receive' option, all of my
        mail arrives in a seperate folder. (Evolution 1.0.5) There is
        a pop box on a remote server involved that I'd like to be
        filtered to a seperate folder. Haven't yet figured out a way
        to do this, but I think that's where evolutions own folders
        come in.. (Or I could kludge up something using fetchmail..)

	control over it.)
