If I create an account and instead of setting the account to POP for
receiving I set it to Maildir how can emails be retrieved under that
account (given that there are no POP settings in it)? 

I mean how does one work with emails in Maildir format through Evolution
in a practical sense? 

Umm, you just click on them?  It is almost entirely exactly like imap.

If you want to get pop mail, then you setup a pop mail account.  If you want all your mail to go into the maildir folders, then you setup a filter to move them there.  There are no giant leaps of logic involved here.

I have been trying and trying and dying to find out but have found
nothing on this anywhere even though Evolution is purported to support
Maildir.  I am asking because all my old email under KMail is in maildir
format and I would like to get it into Evolution.  Plus the fact that I
As above.
would prefer for my emails to be stored in Maildir format.
