http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I can see that there are 2 relevant directories which are used by Evolution 3.4.3 to store mails: ~/.local/share/evolution/mail/local_mbox/ ~/.cache/evolution/mail/.../folders/INBOX/ My Inbox vfolder has 7500 mails, has claimed in Evolution. And the Trash is supposed to be emptied at the exit. In the first directory there is a huge (1.2 GB) "Inbox" text file which has 6000 entries (cat ~/.local/share/evolution/mail/local_mbox/Inbox | grep 'From ' | wc -l). Surprisingly the last entry is dated 06/2011. I guess that more recent mails are stored elsewhere (but where ?). Al (HowTos)
