You might try this:
1) Stop Evo completely ("evolution --force-shutdown")
2) Vacuum the SQL database:
        cd ~/.local/share/evolution/mail/
        for i in `find . -name folders.db`
                echo "Rebuilding Table $i"
                sqlite3 $i "vacuum;"
It may or may not help, but it won't do any harm.
Seems it worked - even though I couldn't find the vacuum command in the
man page ?:-| ???

??? "vacuum" is an sqlite command; it is PostgreSQL like syntax
equivalent to what most databases call "UPDATE STATISTICS" [although it
does have a somewhat different connotation].

Many applications use SQLite and suffer from this same problem.  I wrote
a script that searched for SQLite database and vacuums them all.


Applications have gotten better about the care and feeding of their pet
databases, but running through them occasionally doesn't hurt - and
sometimes releases a surprising amount of disk space.
