I switched to Ubuntu 10.04, which provides Evolution 2.28.3, about a
month ago. Started getting the "Error storing folder 'Inbox'" message
(other people seem to get more complex messages). I tried what was
suggested in an earlier thread:

   evolution --force-shutdown
   rm ~/.evolution/mail/local/folders.db

This seemed to clear up the 'Inbox' problem, but now I'm getting the
same problem with a different folder ("Error storing folder 'Lynn'").
Now I also just go "Error while Expunging folder" after trying to empty

Try removing *all* the folders.db files (after shutting down Evo of
course). Errors with the Trash folder are really errors with the folder
the deleted messages are in (Trash is not a real folder).

Did I miss a solution in my Googline, or is there none, even after all
these years? Is it just a Ubuntu problem?

It has nothing to do with Ubuntu as such, but note that the latest Evo
is 2.32 so perhaps upgrading to a later Ubuntu will get you a later Evo.
