Re: [Evolution-hackers] Problems with mailboxes after move from sendmail to imap

The hackers list is for discussing Evolution development only, it is not

And please, do not cross-post.

Sendmail is for *sending* only, IMAP is for *retrieving* mails (and
managing them on the server). You will need a SMTP server anyways.

This are cached mails only, AFAIK. As this is an IMAP account, the
actual mails are located at your IMAP server.

Those are for *local* mails only. You will not see files like them in
your IMAP cache directories.

Seems, your admins screwed things up heavily... :-/
You need to talk to them.
