Re: [Evolution] Properly archiving Evolution data

If evolution can import a single dbx folder from outlook express, why can't it export such a folder.  If I could expect noncurrent folders as dbx, that would solve the problem.

I guess you could create a Search folder matching the messages you want to archive then save them all in an mbox file and delete them.
This would pretty much be my recommendation - create an additional local account [MBOX or Maildir - PAYING ATTENTION TO WHERE YOU CREATE IT] and move the stuff you want to archive to that account. Then you can go into Evolution and mark the account as inactive ... until such time as you need to access it again, then just toggle it back on. For backup of the archive you just make a copy of the account content [from where you created it].
Yes, that would be slightly more elegant than my proposal. Obviously the dummy account should never check for new email or be selected as the default sending address. In fact the sending and receiving servers should probably be set to dummy addresses. poc _______________________________________________ evolution-list mailing list evolution-list gnome org To change your list options or unsubscribe, visit ...
