Ok, fine
(search for
"Data storage locations").

"Data storage" explains:

Evolution 3.6 and later stores its data according to the XDG Base
Directory Specification. By default this means: 

The user's data files   $HOME/.local/share/evolution 
Various configuration and state files   $HOME/.config/evolution
Account settings        $HOME/.config/evolution/sources
Disposable data caches  $HOME/.cache/evolution
Configuration settings in GSettings     $HOME/.config/dconf <<

so, do i need to copy&paste all (and only) above directories from old
machine over to the new one? Is doing so safe? 

You don't need to copy anything below .cache because it will be
recreated as needed. And once again, make sure Evo is completely off
before copying.
