IIUC you want to use the engine of evolution, but not the UI. If so,
I've been working on a mail daemon which has all the mail logic built
in and exposes mail (basic) interface over dbus. If you aren't
interested in that, you can look at which is a new
library that I added a week ago in master which provides most of what
you are looking at except the UI.
