Re: [Evolution] migrating locally stored messages and contacts

Just make a full backup of your home directory, or if you don't want to do that, you need to backup all gconf data as well as ~/evolution.  Make sure neither gconf nor evolution are running when you do it, on either machine.  Check the archives of the list if you need more info.

IT should just detect the old version's data and upgrade the configuration automatically.

The directory and file structure between the two versions of Evolution 
seems to be different enough at first glance that a straight copy of the 
files from the source machine to the destination machine will not work.

Does anyone have any pointers on the best/cleanest way to migrate my 
locally stored messages to the new Evolution layout?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
