Re: [Evolution] moving old mail; accounts; and filters to a new user

No there isn't any online tutorial, perhaps there should be.

Email is fine, just copy the entire evolution directory to the new

Filters you will need to edit ~/evolution/filters.xml and fix any
references to the old username.

Accounts - it dpeends on which version of evolution you're using.  With
1.4.x you can just copy the gconf stuff across (in
~/.gconf/apps/evolution - shutdown gconf first though).  Again, any
references to the username can be changed.

We plan to make 2.0 not store anything using absolute paths including
the username, or at least not normal things.

What is the correct procedure for doing this? Also, I have old mail
backed up on a CD from an evolution installation on Mandrake 9.1. I
would like to import these values into the new install as well.

Is there an online tutorial on how to do this?

Thanks in advance,
