Or restart it with "evolution --offline".  
Is it safe (or advisable) to shut down Evolution with a kill

What is speaking against
$ evolution --help | grep shutdown
  --force-shutdown              Forcibly shut down Evolution

Apparently, nothing. I was unaware of the option. I am relatively new
to Linux, and while I definitely know about thngs like --help and man
pages, I did not think to try them, as Evolution comes with its own
help file, and I saw nothing in it to indicate forced shutdown as a

$ man evolution
              Forcibly shut down Evolution and background Evolution-Data-Server processes.
