is there a way to do that? I have searched everywhere and aparantly there is no option...
I would really appreciate that, I would like to share my messages between windows and linux, just as I make with thunderbird...
Thank you for your answers
I would like to know how to do this, too. I don't want to have my mails in my home-directory.
once again, the FAQ on http://www.go-evolution.org/FAQ helps:
Where does Evolution store my data?
Evolution stores your data in $HOME/.evolution/, your account settings in $HOME/.gconf/apps/evolution and your passwords in $HOME/.gnome2_private/Evolution. The passwords are not stored encrypted, just base64 encoded. SSL Certificates are stored in $HOME/.camel_certs, and if Evolution crashed while you were writing an email, there could even be a file $HOME/.evolution-composer.autosave-123456 (where 123456 is some string).
$HOME/ of course refers to linux file systems. On Windows these folders are in
C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\USERNAME\
that´s of course the german Path, I suppose translated the folder would be called "documents and settings" - anyway, it's the folder with all the user specific files are stored like "my files" and so on.
The FAQ also provides directions how to backup mail and/or personal settings btw.
