Re: [Evolution] evolution config info stored where?


The wizard creates a directory, called "evolution" in each user's home account.  All the setup info is in there.  The main file is called config.xmldb, but the other stuff (directories as well as files) is important too.  I would study this carefully before attempting anything ambitious, as I've found that changing things can have strange effects.

Where the heck does evolution store the mail account settings? I have to
create 10+ user accounts in evolution, all which are very small variants
of each other. If I have to go through that fscking new account wizard
one more time, I'll throw up. Can't I just edit a .conf file, copy the
accounts and make the changes in emacs?

I've done the following...

cd ~
find -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep -il 'mail-account-specific-string'
cd ~/evolution
find -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep -il 'mail-account-specific-string'

...which turned up squat. I really don't get it.

It *might* be tolerable if there was a "Copy" or "Clone" button in the
Tools -> Mail Settings... -> Accounts interface, but there's not....

Any help on finding where Evolution stores its user settings would be
greatly appreciated....
