What folder does evolution store emails?


Can someone tell me what directory evolution stores emails and what the name of the file is? I've looked in the following dorectories:

/usr/bin/evolution /usr/lib/evolution /usr/libexec/evolution /usr/share/evolution

But I'm not sure of the name of the mail file(s).

Thanks,
Ben

Try more like /home/<user>/Evolution

That's where it should store your email usually by default in your home directory, not in /usr

$HOME/.evolution/mail/local to be more specific

When I tried to follow your instruction there is no evolution folder (It is hidden folder). But I finally found it by hitting Ctrl+H to unhide the folder. My Question is how do I map email message folder to other folder on other partition ?
