Can' import old mail into evolution - no importable settings found

Hi all, here's my situation:

I (at last succesfully) upgraded my Debian from Lenny to Squeeze

Evolution easily imported all the settings from before the dist upgrade

however, only the mail received since then is displayed
when looking into the .evolution folder, and displyaing Inbox with ledd, I saw mails from last fall, however the evolution client only displays the last few (that I can also find with less in the file)

When I try to Import settings, I get the message no importable messages found.

Any pointers?

Hasn't the Evolution FAQ: helped you in any way?
Then you might like to shoot out their mailing list:

martin11: have you ever found what caused and/or fixed this. I am now in the exact same situation as you and I really need to get this to work ASAP.
BTW: I did have a good long look at the FAQ and that didn't really help at all.
