Hi :)
Sorry for top-posting! :(  I've tried to trim to compensate for it a bit.  

Swarup, have you run updates and rebooted at least once?  Event the 14.04 has a lot of updates already.  Also were the file-permissions ok on the compressed back-up?  Sometimes copying files around can mess up the permissions.  

Also a lot of programs are moving their configs into a sub-folder
although there is also a lot in 
I just looked in all these places. There are evo folders in the .cache and .config locations. The .cache one looked more promising, as it has a mail folder and an address folder. But I although I have mail in my inbox, I could not find any mail at all in that mail folder-- which made me doubt that this is the folder I am in search of. Could this be the proper folder? Here is the pathway:


In addition to the mail folder, there are folders labeled addressbook, calendar, memos, sources, and tasks. This looks like the real think, doesn't it? But inside the mail folder there is only a trash folder. No inbox, no outbox or anything containing any mail.

I think it's an attempt to declutter the home folder for each user but there seems to be bigger reasons too.

have started up evolution, putting in my email account info and so forth. I've received mail to the account. I tried using the compressed backup to restore all the mail etc, but it froze evo when I tried. Did it twice, and it happened both times. I would like to try populating the .evolution with my mail and address book, and see what happens. The problem is, that I looked in the home folder for the .evolution folder which contains all the mail etc, but it isn't there. Very surprising, as once an evo account is created and used, that is always where it was located in the past. Do I need to look somewhere else for it?
