Re: [Evolution] Missing mail folders after manual restore

do you mean there is no On This Computer in the folder tree on the 
left of the list of messages? What do you see in 
Edit->Preferences->Mail Accounts, is there On This Computer and it is 
enabled? Are there any runtime warnings on the console, when you run 
evolution from it?

        Hi thanks for the reply. I've only just started getting the
        digests. Under my computer there was nothing apart from my
        Virtual Folders. No Inbox, no folders of any kind other than my
        search folders. All my accounts were there under Edit -
        >Preferences - > Mail Accounts. 
        I have solved it now by renaming the ./local/share/evolution
        folder to another name, restarting evolution forcing it to
        create a new set of mailboxes and then copying my old ones back
        into the new folders bit by bit and restarting evolution each
        time so that copied folder is integrated into the tree. Then I
        copy and paste the mail into a new folder using the evolution
        program as I no longer trust the integrity of the original
        folders. It has taken me a long time but it is now working.
        I have to say that there has to be a better way. The backup and
        restore system has only ever worked once for me. Thanks for the
