Here's a one-liner to remove cache entries over 30 days old (by
modification time):

find .cache/evolution/mail ! -newermt $(date -d '30 days ago' +%F)

(Better use with Evo shut down).

Oops, I forgot the '| xargs rm' at the end of the line. However the result of adding that will remove more than I expected so I don't recommend doing this without further testing.

Apologies for the inconvenience. At least it shouldn't lose anyone's mail.
