Re: [Evolution] Changing Evolution settings via text files

Right now when I switch networks I have to change my smtp server setting
as well as my IMAP server setting.  When I am at home, my IMAP server
has to be set to localhost, because I access my IMAP server through a
port forward set up by ssh.  So at work it has to be,
and at home it has to be localhost.  And then I have to change my smtp
server between the one at work and the one for my ISP.

Is there a straightforward way to do this via text file editing (I'm
fairly good with perl so I could probably whip up a couple-line script
to do it if I knew which files to touch)?  I dug around a bit in my
~/evolution/config/ area but was unsure if this was the right place and
if so which files.

account configuration is stored in GConf, so you can use gconftool-2
command line tool to modify the configuration.

In fact, it's stored in the /apps/evolution/mail/accounts key.
