Help please.

I don't use Evolution, I don't know what effect installing "the call When mail arrived" should have and I don't know what you mean with "the old evolution email page" but https://help.gnome.org/users/evoluti...torage.html.en lists the locations to check. If the mail seems gone (no or zero size files) then you could try and restore them (https://help.gnome.org/users/evoluti...estore.html.en) provided you made regular backups. If you didn't then know you unfortunately know why you should.

When I've had Evolution lose mail, it was still there - but Evolution refused to see it. Even after a restore.
However I was able to get another client (claws in my case) to successfully import it.

So take a backup now anyway - you may still be able to resurrect your mail if it physically exists even if Evolution refuses to play nice.
