Yeah.  I am in a similar boat.

Well, a cache should only make things more efficient, it shouldn't be
strictly necessary.  As a colleague of mine once said, "A cache that
never cleans up after itself isn't a cache, it's a leak."  I don't know
if Evolution cleans up after itself in low disk situations.

Yeah, I would be fine with Beagle having some way to signal to the mail
clients, "Hey, I'm interested in this email, can you pull it down for
me?"  But scale is always a problem.  That's probably fine for 1, 2, 20
emails, but if Beagle is consistently asking for 40,000 emails it'll
saturate your network connection.

I believe if you right click on the folder, go to Properties, and check
the "Copy folder content locally for offline operation" checkbox it will
do it.  If you have local filters you run on messages I think that will
do it as well.  And of course if you actually read the mail, that will
also cache it locally.
