Nope. Passwords and some other info are stored by gconf-something. Check
the archives [1] for an older thread in which I participated and where a
couple of people explained it well. But you need to back up two things,
the .evolution directory and an exported set of stuff from gconf-
something.

[1] Check the archives for both fedora-list and fedora-test-list. And
please, use MARC (http://marc.theaimsgroup.com) to save your sanity...
the Red Hat archives are useless.

How about this: https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2004-October/msg02660.html

Which was the first hit on this search:

It's not the thread you were referring to but it does appear to have an answer.

Paul.
