FWIW: All indexing files are recreated on startup. I would always save
the entire structure without the indexing files (that means: directory
hierarchy, all mbox (!) files and all *.xml files are needed). [1]

Whether you meant to copy all directory, subdirectories and files such


and in case of problem after upgrade, all/some mails in their respective
boxes lost, edit all .xml files including "mbox, mbox.ev-summary and
mbox.ibex" back to new mail boxes created for such purpose.  What I need
to retain are only "inbox" and "sent" boxes.

What is "directory hierarchy"?

Kindly advise.

Thanks in advance.


For archiving (and even backup) I would dump the indexing files for the
sake of a lean backup. Just be prepared to wait and drink a coffee when
running Evolution the first time after restoring from backup without
indexing files...


[1] That is, unless you manually edited the .xml file to point to
another file than default "mbox"
