Hrm, having used it every day for about 3 months, it is a bit less than 
stable.  The two biggest problems I had were:

1.  Destruction of email.  It seemed to "partially receive" email, and 
*somehow* manage to mangle the server stored copy, so that even if I 
accessed it later using Outlook, I'd just get a blank email, with 
mangled "garbage" headers.  I wish I had kept one of these, as I meant 
to file it as a bug, but was too busy at the time.

2.  General instability.  It crashed a LOT.  Evo seemed fine running on 
its own, but add the plugin, and the evo root window would just vanish 
at random intervals.

Needs more work.  I've not used it again for about 3 months though. 
This may be fixed now...
