I use both Thunderbird plus Evolution, on different PCs.
My experience about the difference:
-Evolution is a calendar/workgroup client, which is
thunderbird not. Yes, there is a calendar extension
to thunderbird. Maybe other extensions too. I do
not use these features.
-Evolution maybe opened multiple times. Thunderbird
not, but thunderbird opens mails using tabs similar
to firefox. Evolution will open a new window.
-My general experience: Thunderbird is more stable
compared to Evolution, at now.
-Both can handle multiple accounts, filter rules etc.
