Back when I used evolution, after the install, the reboot, etc. I would 
copy the dot-directory that evolution resided in, from my backup, and it 
always worked. YMMV. I didn't have much luck with the export/import from 
backup scheme. That is what I do with thunderbird now, crossing my 
fingers that nothing significant had changed in the file structure. Ric

..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
