Hi everyone
Had to just put in a fresh install of 8.10 after doing a daft change with the location of home - wasn't able to log in... long story. Have a ntfs windows partition, and separate swap, root and home partitions. Backed up home partition using explore2fs. Then re-formatted the swap, root and home partitions. Want to use my previous evolution mail, accounts, folders etc. I didn't do a evolution export using evolution itself [SILLY!], but have a copy of the .evolution folder. A step by step guide (for a newbie) to importing previous evolution mail etc would be most welcome. Thanks in anticipation.
