I have installed ( instead of upgraded ) F10 over an existing F9

the release numbers of Evolution that came with F9.

F9 -> 2.22
F10 -> 2.24

The local file structure changed from 2.22 to 2.24 because Evo now uses
an SQL database for indexing.

This might be useful:

Wow. That suggests one has to manually import the mail one folder at a
time. This seems like a fairly painful and tedious process to force
Evolution users to go through just to upgrade Evolution from one version
to another. Particularly for users with hundreds of folders and
thousands of emails. Surely the developers included some automagical
ability to simply identify the Evolution config and data files by
version and make whatever changes are needed to keep them working with
the new version of the program?

I've no idea. I had no problem converting from 2.22 to 2.24, in fact it
was completely transparent, but I don't use local maildir folders and in
fact most of my mail is on IMAP servers, which wouldn't be a problem in
any case.
