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
would prefer for my emails to be stored in Maildir format.
