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

Yes, I would expect that. My question is whether all of Evo's database

In which case I think the argument about how to make sure Evo is
stopped before doing a backup is pointless. Just don't stop it.
