http://ubuntuforums.org – I love Ubuntu and Evolution so I installed Evolution on Ubuntu 12.04 when I upgraded recently. I restored my mail from a backup and on starting Evolution for the first time, received a message about converting my emails and once successful, deleting the mbox versions via Edit -> Preferences -> Mail accounts. This all worked as expected until I did my first backup and realised that the backup file has doubled in size from about 2GB to 4.2GB. My mail seems to now be stored in the following folders: /.local/share/evolution/mail/local_mbox - 4.2 GB /.local/share/evolution/mail/l (Hardware)
