Past mails are kept in a single file in mbox format.  The path to these
is different in Evo 2.x.x compared to previous versions (as far as I can
tell).  Just dig deep and look for these mbox files in your old Evo
directories (can't remember some example pathways at the moment because
mine are on an old drive sitting on the office shelf).  When you find
them, these are the ones you need to select when doing an import of a
_single file_ in Evo 2.x.x- using the import process I explained before.
As a clue to finding them, make sure you can see hidden files in your
chosen file manager and start to look
under /home/[usernmae]/.evolution/....

Yeh, that's the "export" as vcard that I was writing about :-).  Glad
you worked it out.
