I have just installed and run clamav.  clamscan found 49 corrupted files

I need to know is can I just go into my mail cache and delete those
infected email files?  Or will that screw up indexing or something?

Is local mail cached?  For IMAP mail, here's what I'd do:

I don't use IMAP.  All the mail is downloaded from my rogers/yahoo.
Rogers is my cable company.

From an xterm prompt:
$ acct=me\ haggis
$ evolution --force-shutdown
$ rm -rf ~/.evolution/mail/imap/${acct}/folders/INBOX

Next time I open a folder on an IMAP server, Evo will re-cache what
is necessary.

Some of the offending mail is in .evolution and some in .evolution2.
As you can tell, I have left learning about mail until later.  I guess
later is now.

Sample message from clamav:
"/home/bill/.evolution2/mail/pop/wmcase pop broadband rogers com/cache/31/ca59f62609ca94efc11383fe3827ee2c: 
Exploit.IFrame.Gen FOUND"

This is just a pop cache, it can be deleted without any problems.
~/.evolution/mail/pop/<account>/cache/* are just temporary locations for
POP messages to be downloaded to before they get delivered into the
local mailboxes.
