Similar to what?  Nothing Evolution done is particularly unique; and it
is a private data application store... so it is ONLY a concern for the
application.  Stay out of there.

From time to time I take the liberty to throw a scrutiny at all that's
mine, even if it's leased to third party ;-)

Perhaps I would have been supposed to format the output a little more so
that it gets more striking. For me it was striking enough to write it
for you: a folder has approximately the 300-fold size of the rest :-O
So I meant: Similar to the following -->
(... lots of entries with   SIZE ...)

(the other half with size of^^^^)

I wouldn't like to format the mail - hope you nevertheless see the
runaway. It is 10 IMAP accounts and 1 NNTP account, that seems to 
meta data and cache on at least
thomas ga-78:~/.local/share/evolution/mail/1420635858 9770 2 ga-78$ 
wc -l
23737 newsgroups. I'm subscribed to 5 (FIVE) of them. Did Evolution
store the whole server ?

Depends on what options are selected.

There were not (m)any options to select. Only thing I remember that I
selected the short notation of the names in the tree.
What do you have in mind here ? Where should I have a look at ? 

What is your opinion on that ?

If you want to index or SPAM score, etc... you need the entire message,
so the entire message is downloaded.

Please keep in mind that I found these immense numbers in the directory
for the nntp account - so it's usenet what I'm talking about ...
