Is there a HOWTO published?  If not, would someone be so kind as to send

It should Just Work.  Make sure to back up your .evolution directory

Note: This is *not* sufficient, as has been posted here many times.
You'll need at least these dirs:


But the .gconf directory only stores preferences that can easily be
restored.  All of the data that the OP wants to preserve (inbox, mail

Besides this should just work, right?  It would be a grave bug if an
upgrade destroyed any of this data.
