well, the same as one got in ~/evolution/local/ starting with the mbox,
Inbox, and if it got subfolders they're under Inbox.sbd etc. eh you
know :)

Really? were would i look to see examples of that/those functions?!
i grep:ed for ".sbd" but didnt get anything worthy out of it.

Okey, well to be honest have i never used cpio. so at the Moment i think
ill look for a tar sollution, but i figgured, since at the moment im
thinking about doing this with a system() thing, one could do an
execution of a custom string. 

Like this :
(um yeah, the middle button is "preferences")

im not to good with the gui stuff so any suggestions/pointers is always
welcomed. :)

hm just remembered, the screens arent really as i planed them to be,
sine the compression is going to be on the exported folder, not
~/evolution .. but you get the idea...
