[Evolution] Re: [Evolution-hackers] Problems with mailboxes after move from sendmail to imap

The hackers list is for discussing Evolution development only, it is not
a list for user questions.

And please, do not cross-post.

I'am using evolution 1.4.5 without problems.

My IT-Operations department moved my mail accout from a sendmail based
mailserver to an IMAP based during my vacation.

Sendmail is for *sending* only, IMAP is for *retrieving* mails (and
managing them on the server). You will need a SMTP server anyways.

After my return I got all my mails from INBOX, but not my former mails
from SENT folder.

If I look into the folder structure of my evolution config I still have
entries in 


This folder contains about 1800 files named like 

50. and 50.0
971. and 971.0

<any-nr>.0 seems to be the mailheader
<any-nr). seems to be the mailbody

This are cached mails only, AFAIK. As this is an IMAP account, the
actual mails are located at your IMAP server.

The typical mbox entries 


are missing!!!

Those are for *local* mails only. You will not see files like them in
your IMAP cache directories.

Does anybody know if and when yes how I can create an "importable" mbox
based on the files <any-nr>. <any-nr>.x  and put it in a local folder?

Any idea would extremely appreciate

Seems, your admins screwed things up heavily... :-/
You need to talk to them.
