Read Evolution Mail from Slave HDD


SUSE 10.3, I recently had trouble with my Motherboard & had to change it. Before changing it I saved all the files I thought necessary, but forgot the eMails in Evolution. I had to set up a new HDD. Now I can access my original HDD as a slave, I have tried to find the location of my Evolution mails without success. Can anyone tell me how to do this, which drive would they be on -
SDB1-Swap, SDB2- Root, SDB3- Home, & where abouts, could I copy them to my mew drive ? Thanks.

Look on your old hard drive, in your old home directory. If your user name was 'frank', your Evolution files are probably in /home/frank/.evolution

If you're running the same version of Evolution as you were before, you can just copy over that whole directory structure to your new home directory, and fire up Evolution. At least that's worked for me in the past. Use the command "cp -R <old location> <new location>", such as "cp -R /home/frank/.evolution /newhome/frank/"

Kmail also has a tool to import Evolution data from 1.x and 2.x formats.
