Hi I know this is not direclty related to hacking on evolution, but I
would like to ask one advice.
I have about 5Gb of e-mails on my laptop which I use for work, and it
is still on evolution 2.26.3.
I would like to migrate now this stuff to evolution 3.6.x
What is the best way to do that ?
Simply upgrading evolution seems not to work, as it starts the wizard
as if .evolution dir doesnt exist.
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.
Ok how can I do that external account ? You mean use something else
like Thunderbird ?
No, I mean you can make an account in Evolution that stores mail locally
in a 'standard' format like MBOX or MailDir. You specify a directory
and mail and mailboxes are stored in that format there. Then you can
just drag the mail from your On this computer mailbox (assuming you
are POP'ing into that from somewhere). Then you have the mail 'outside
of Evolution'. And the new version of Evolution can look in the same
place for mail; you can either copy it back into on-this-computer
[assuming it doesn't transfer automatically] after you upgrade, or just
continue using the 'external' mail store.
I believe this is an option for 2.26, which I certain could do at least
MBOX, if no MH. But I don't really remember the 2.x series that well
[it has been a long time].
Ok all my mail is pop and its stored on my few computers, I rsync them
So all I have is a huge .evolution directory, with all what is made and
evolution-2.26.3 . I will try your suggestion.
Another question I have, to install evolution 3.0.x do I need to
install also evolution-data-server-3.0.x or can I do that with
Ok it seems that downgrading my evolution to 3.0.x is not an option,
missing a lot of stuff aas deps and would meant
to downgrade a lot of things, from gtk on.
So I will opt for the other option as Adam suggested.
