good you made it working. I wanted to avoid the account re-creation,
because it means to re-download everything from the server. I might
mention it as an option earlier, I guess.

Anyway, I'd like to comment/clarify on the above (quoted) thing:

You've been playing with internal Evolution files. As Evolution is not
only Evolution, it's also evolution-data-server, then even you deleted
the files the background processes of the evolution-data-server had the
data in memory. You might execute `evolution --force-shutdown` before
and after you play with the internal evolution(-data-server) files, to
really start from scratch. Or restart the machine. That was the reason
why the account was still visible, stale data in memory.
