Re: [Evolution] Properly archiving Evolution data

Hello Andre:

This is a very good question.  I would like to be able to archive certain folders (for example, those from inactive clients), but be to bring them back quickly should I need them.  I had that situation occur recently, and what saved me was that I still had the Outlook Express database intact on the Windows side of my laptop and also archived on the remote backup service I use for my Windows partitions on my PCs.  Right now a full evolution (3.16.0) is almost 6 GB.

Topic kinda says it...I'd like to try and archive my data, but not do a full backup. Right now I'm focused on emails and sent items. My hope is to archive off say....all emails and sent items of 2013 into a file or directory, and then be easily easy to open (not import) an email if I'd like to reference it. Is there anything like that available, or a method to do that with Evolution? Thank you.
Could you explain *why* you would like to do that / which underlying problem you would like to solve, and what is the difference between your interpretation of the words "open" and "import"? Also, which mail account type is this about? Which Evolution version? andre
