    Aren't they stored in ~/.evolution? I'm not at my box atm, so I can't tell j00 for sure.

    thanks

    Yes i am very stupid. Found in a folder in my home directory. Well I think I've got everything - all backed up. Only restoring will tell me for sure.

    evolution

    your evoltion account settings are not stored in the ~/evolution
    ~/evolution contains your filter settings and your email folders
    and ofcourse al your email

    but your acount settings are in the .gnome subfolders
    don't know exactly which one

    regards
