evolution mail problem

Postby hhead » Sun Jan 13, 2013 9:48 am

We were using evolution ( 2.30.2 ) mail on ubuntu12.04. It got corrupted first it kept saying it needed our server password but not accepting it then it would only take us into the new user wizard. We have an evolution backup from May 2012 we could use but would like to get our more recents emails and adresses back if possible. I installed mint 13 with the version of evolution that is installed with that version. It it possible to copy the .evolution/ files I have backed up into the new ~/.evolution folder or import them into thunderbird? I tried the following on 12.04 w/o success.

Code: Select all

evolution-addressbook-export --format=csv >contacts.csv

Any help appeciated ta.

I suppose this the above question is solved since we gave up and restored from our backup. Which worked except evolution kept asking us for the server login password and keyring password.

The keyring I seem to have solved by

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/gnome_keyring/mate_keyring/g' /etc/pam.d/*


(although I have not rebooted yet)

it will not stop asking for the server login though. How do I stop it doing this? PS it works its just annoying.

Code: Select all

inxi -S
System:    Host: hol-desktop Kernel: 3.2.0-23-generic i686 (32 bit) Desktop: N/A Distro: Linux Mint 13 Maya
