I have a laptop that's running Sylpheed and I would like to import the folders, subfolders and files over to Evolution. In my case, the import

efficiently.  Pointers welcome.

I think you just need to copy folders from the Claws folder into the evolution folder, which is usually
preceding the name with a dot, e.g.
cp -a ~/Claws/ross ~/.local/share/evolution/mail/local/.ross
Then you have to do something to force evolution to recreate the index files (mostly <foo>.cmeta.) As I remember, you need to remove all these files and then restart evolution; but I am not sure because the last time I did it was about 20 years ago.

Good luck - jon
