If all you want to do is mail then it seems like it wouldn't be a bad
idea to make an 'external' local account (maildir or mbox [not certain
what is available in 2.26]) and then just copy all your mail.  Upgrade.
'Reconnect' the new evolution to that account.

For contacts you can also select them all, save to a VCF file, and then
import that VCF files.  That isn't bad as a backup in any case.
