Evolution Mail Data Store


I recently loaded CENTOS 7 on my computer about two months ago. I'm using Evolution as my mail client. I have two drives in my machine and I store my mail on the second drive with the operating system residing on the first drive. I recently had a problem with the Operating System that I could not repair so I reloaded the OS and pre-served the content on the second drive. I've reloaded the OS and now I'm trying to configure the mail client Evolution. Since I already have a mail store in place I want to point the mail client to the existing mail data store on the second drive before starting to received mail.

Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?

Thanks in advance.

As no-one else has answered this, and although I know next to nothing about Evolution, I'll see if I can help you out.

Given that Evolution appears to recommend that you don't change the default location of the mail folders (https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Evolutio...ail_folders.3F) and the data folder is normally $HOME/.local/share/evolution (https://help.gnome.org/users/evoluti...torage.html.en), how did you separate out the mail folders in the first place? The answer to that question will probably determine the best method of regaining the previous situation.
