My examples above were mistaken.  I was referring to account types that
deliver mail to the "On This Computer" store such as POP.  How and where
those mails get stored is up to Evolution.

You can still set up ~/Documents/Email as the root of a maildir tree and
point Evolution at it.  The data there won't be moved.
