You're right, I don't use Evolution. I use (and highly recommend) fastmail.fm, via their excellent webmail interface. So my mail program is just as memory-hungry as Firefox, because it is Firefox.
Slightly more on topic: Mozilla has been working on reducing memory usage in recent versions of Firefox, with good success AFAICT. So we may need to find another stress-tester for the memory subsystem ... :-)
