I'm trying evolution because I've heard good things. i got it working. but what I want to know is can I minimize it to the system tray. I can't seem to find an option? I found an outdated thread adding a patch to an outdated version. I'm using version 2.6.2-r1

You can try alltray, it is in Portage.

What can I use today?
alltray seems to have gone, can't find it in the tree anymore. There is gnome-extra/evolution-tray-0.0.8 in the sunrise Overlay, but does not compile:
Code:
evolution-plugin-3.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'evolution-plugin-3.0' found
configure: error: Unable to find plugin directory
alltray would just be a silly button, I would prefer some tray showing the unread mail count. I've seen such a thing on Gnome, but here I'm on Xfce.

Finally I got this hint and I'm happy that it still works: https://github.com/KostadinAtanasov/evolution-on
I have a tray icon now, showing and hiding evolution.
