So it's not clear to me that stopping Evo during a backup is actually

Even if you would use POP accounts and Evolution would automatically
download messages during the backup, it shouldn't matter.

I'm using POP accounts, but I make backups of whole Linux installs, not
just of Evolution or of a /home folder. I restart the computer and boot
into another Linux, to backup installs that aren't running, either via
'cp -ai' or usually by 'tar --xattrs -czf' and FWIW I 'dd' MBRs. FreeBSD
allows to backup a running install by the 'dump' command. Actually I
restored broken Linux installs from backups heaps of times, _always_
being successfully. I can't comment on FreeBSD, since I dropped it.
