I'm curious which files I should back up to retain mail
messages/folders/filters, calendar, and contacts. All on a RH9/Evolution
1.2 system.

For as long as I can remember (using 1.4.5 currently but started with
1.dontaskme) it simply is ~/evolution

That's correct for the mentioned data.

For backup purposes, you don't need all those mail indexing files and
can save a lot of backup space. Those files will be recreated after
restoring from backup when Evolution is running the first time.

You can prune all indexing files mbox.* in your ~/evolution/local/
(sub)folders. (Note the dot! Do backup the mbox file itself, as it holds
the mail!)

Backing up settings and accounts can be a bit trickier:

Some special (and not too vital parts) are stored in different
directories. SSL certificates are in ~/.camel_certs/ and spell checking
settings are in ~./gnome/gnome-spell IIRC.

FYI: Evolution 1.4.x stores most of its settings using GConf, so you
should backup ~/.gconf/apps/evolution/ too if you wanna save your
settings and accounts.
