My problem is i forgot my email passwords for 3 diff accounts. is there any way that i can find a saved file that will give me the passwords? if not, if i copy over my .evolution dir to my new home will it work? i guess i need to quit saving passwords

Copying over your .evolution dir should work.

Beyond that contact your isp (email provider), and ask them to reissue the passwords, its not usually a big problem.
