|Kontact is the integrated Personal Information Manager of KDE, but can be used with other systems as well.
It supports email, address books, calendars, tasks, news feeds and much more.
The Kontact suite is the powerful PIM solution of KDE. It lets you handle email, agenda, contacts and other 'personal' data together in one place by delivering innovations to help you manage your communications more easily, organize your work faster and work together more closely, resulting in more productivity and efficiency in digital collaboration.
Documentation for Kontact is also available.
