Note that Xubuntu 14.04 Evolution packages are pretty old, even
ancient (3.10 if I understand right). Even Vivid 15.04 has very old
packages. So I compile my own from time to time. Alternatively, if 
upgrade to Vivid 15.04, you can use Fabien Tassin PPA here:  and use 3.16.x

(Ubuntu) procedure for that ?
I'd love to compile my own Evolution from time to time - as 
everyone here on the list seems to do from the sound of it ?!!

I think custom building is rare.  But it is pretty simple to just use a
distribution that provides a current not-terribly-divergent version of
GNOME [and thereby Evolution].

I don't see the fun of it. Finally, I'd like to get to know an Ubuntu
user who knows how - and who passes this straightaway to this list or 
to a web site.

There is Evolution documentation.

It is generally better to go to Application or Project documentation
than whatever [any] distribution has cut-n-pasted into their own
