Default Evolution version

Hi D6 is shipped with Evolution 2.30.3, the last version I was using was
2.32 and I backed up every thing , but now it wont restore, the tar file
is OK, I suspect it knows the version difference and wont play.
Is there a late version of Evolution available as a.deb so I can have
the old mail onthis system ?

Hum... 2.30 and 2.32 look very "close in time" versions but true is that
something could have changed in between (like mail storage format, from
mbox to maildir, but I think this happened since 3.0 not with 2.32
branch) but I would try to get additional information on the error by
launching Evolution from command line and then try to restore the backup
file.

Anyway, if nothing else works and you can still load the backed file from
another machine that is running 2.32 (or from a LiveCD), you can transfer
your messages by means of a "dummy" IMAP account (if you have a local
IMAP server, better, as transfer will go very fast), which is completely
unaware of the messages format and this way you can copy your e-mails
from one Evo to the other "transparently".

Then you can manually export the rest of the settings, like your e-mail
accounts, address book, calendar and tasks and then import them into your
curent Evo (2.30).

Greetings,

Somewhere in the debian users mailing list archive there is a
complicated way to handle this issue. We had problems to import our
mails, even when we used the same versions of Evolution version 2.
See the Forwarded messages, you need to search for this thread.

Correct, mbox to maildir happened from version 2 to version 3.

I'm not sure for Ubuntu Natty, I'll take a look tomorrow. What's to
Debian Squeeze 6.01, it's still ~/.evolution on my system.

I'm going to investigate such an option too. When (or if?) I have time
for it. :-)

Did you mean newsgroup filters? I did not get this trouble since I've
never used Evolution as my newsgroup reader. I use Pan instead.

But I did not loose any of my e-mail filters.

I'm glad it worked for you. And thanks for sharing back. I'll add your
updates to my records.
