If Evo doesn't have information about that mail that is on the ISP

Don't really know how Evo mail is stored, so this is only a guess.

Since you were able to rsync your Evo mail, maybe you can tell me  
where you found it?

I rsync ~/.evolution which contains everything but the gconf
configuration files.  I am not sure about IMAP; it uses a separate mbox.
If you are using a POP3 ISP service all mail is stored in
~/.evolution/mail/local/inbox and other message filtered accounts.
