Strange, I moved around and rsync between installation of Fedora Core
2-3-4, Java Desktop System R2, Ubuntu hoary, Solaris SPARC, all i have
to do is just to move the "~/.evolution" directory. No more, no less.

The only difference is with Fedora Core 1 and Java Dekstop System R1,
they use older evolution "~/evolution" and different mail folder scheme.
