something seems wrong indeed as I have used Evolution for quite some
time (albeit i386 but that shouldn't make any difference).

I have found that 'junk mail filtering' feature slows everything down to
a crawl and does cause a lot of spamd processes and I don't recommend

Try turning off junk mail filtering, exit Evolution, kill off all spamd
processes and see if it isn't better behaved.

Thunderbird is solid and Kmail works well too.
