    Recover evolution mails/ubuntu freezes on boot up

    Please guide me on how to recover mails from evolution 3.2..Due to my experiment with Ubuntu i am unable to boot and Ubuntu freezes when booting up.But i am able to login to terminal mode using ctrl f1 .So please guide me on how to accomplish the same using a live cd or any other method.

    The reason to reach such a stage while boot up is that i played with grub menu tutorial from google.I also tried to repair the boot by usng boot-repair program.But still ubuntu freezes while booting.

    Hi:

    From a live CD/USB, copy the folder /home/yourusernamehere/.local/share/evolution to a safe place.

    Then, on a working install, import messages from the copy of .local/share/evolution/mail/local/

    Good luck

    Even if its solved i would like to give you an advice how i solved a similar problem when the boot process halts.

    I used boot-repair tool but in advanced mode. Choosed "Purge Grub before reinstall" and "Purge Kernels and reinstall last kernel"

    That solved my problem. I tried the easy mode first, but that did not help.
