But that's *not* what I want to do. One can do it more simply anyway
by simply backing up Evolution in one place and restoring in the other.
What I want to do is exactly what I said, copy contacts, calendars,
tasks and memos and *not* E-Mails. Copying any one of contacts,
calendars, tasks and memos would be useful in fact.

Yes, I was a member of that list for a while, I might re-join and ask
the question there.
