Unfortunately, Marcus is right: the ibex file is just indexing
information and doesn't contain your messages.

If the mbox file only contains those few new messages, then I don't
think you'll be able to recover your mail :-(. Did you do anything
unusual before this happened? I don't think Evolution has lost anyone's
mail for a long time; it should be able to handle a 1300-message mbox
without any problems. The large ibex is weird but wouldn't affect the
mail itself.

Hope this helps,
