Ubuntu :: Transferring Saved Emails On Evolution To New Computer

Aug 25, 2010

I'm a new Linux user and i've only dabbled in terminal, but it's been serving me well. Unfortunately when i added my hotmail address to evolution it deleted all the emails from the actual hotmail website and saved them somewhere to my hard drive.

At the time i didn't care but know i've got a new laptop and i'm getting rid of the old one(with the emails on it).

So my question is, how can i transfer the emails to my new laptop or back to hotmail? The new laptop has windows 7 and i was planning on putting ubuntu on one of these days.

Ubuntu :: Evolution 'backup' Skipped All Saved Email

Dec 15, 2010

I recently reinstalled my computer with new hard drives and Ubuntu 10.10 (AMD64). Before the switch I used the 'Backup' function in Evolution to backup all my email and email settings -- I thought! The backup file was big (300 MB) so I didn't double-check how big it should have been.

After the reinstall I restored the backup and Evolution seemed to be working fine, i.e., I could see all the new email in my IMAP mailbox. Also, my local Contacts were all there, as expected. But eventually I tried locating an old email which I had saved to a sub-folder under the 'Local' Inbox and realized that there was nothing there! Fortunately I still had my old hard-drive and so I was able to recover the additional 400 MB of old emails. Shouldn't the 'Backup' function include the entire Evolution profile including any/all 'Local' settings?

Ubuntu :: Evolution - Import Emails Into Another Email Program?

Aug 6, 2010

Normally I just use the backup feature in evolution but how would I go about saving my emails if I wanted to import them into another email program?I am going to install Mint 9 KDE on a separate partition and I have found evolution does not play nicely in KDE so was hoping there was a way of importing my evolution mail into Mints KDE email program.

I have been trying to import e-mails saved in a file with tab spaced values from outlook. When I import the files into evolution it puts them in my address book. I have tried several times and haven't seen any options to change. in the "wizard" it asks me where i want to put the files, but there is only one option.

Ubuntu :: Evolution Email - Intersperse Replies Into Quoted Email?

Apr 24, 2010

I use 'quoted' style for reply emails. I want to be able to intersperse my replies within a quoted reply i.e. if the email had three paragraphs, I'd like to be able to have my replies between each of the paragraphs. At the moment, I don't seem to be able to do anything other than delete from the quoted section - I try to simulate my requirements by cutting and then 'paste quotation', but this doesn't always work as sometimes Evolution adds too many levels of '> ' .

Fedora :: Error While Fetching Email. Evolution Version: Evolution 2.28.0

Apr 5, 2010

I had configured the evolution to send/recive email. After it had been configured, it could receive emails. Suddendly it can't fetch email anymore. In the inbox of evolution, there were about 200 emails. There are maybe 5K emails in the server, I guessed. I'm not sure whether it's the problem that there's one email in the server too big, so the evolution can not fetch it. The error of evolution is: error while fetching email. Evolution version: Evolution 2.28.0. OS version: Linux xxx2.6.32.9-70.fc12.i686.PAE #1 SMP Wed Mar 3 04:57:21 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux I'm sure my network is fine, I use pop3 to receive email.

nslookup result:
$ nslookup pop3.163.com
Non-authoritative answer:
pop3.163.comcanonical name = pop.163.com.
pop.163.comcanonical name = pop3.163.idns.yeah.net.

General :: New Email Addresses Not Saved?

Dec 5, 2009

I have my email on a separate partition so that my email doesn't get destroyed when I do new linux installs (I have emails from 5 years ago now). I also keep my sylpheed email addressbooks. This partition is writable by anybody and I have also made my user the owner of this partition during each linux install (media/email). When I set up sylpheed I tell it that my email is in /media/email and then it is able to write incoming messages to that location. The problem I am having is that I make symbolic links for my addressbooks from ~/.sylpheed* to /media/email using this:cd ~/.sylpheed*rm addrbook-000001.xmlln -s /media/email/addrbook-000001.xml addrbook-000001.xmlSylpheed finds my addressbook ok on my email partition but changes that symbolic link to a file on ~ when it writes new addresses. What am I doing wrong...I want it to write new addresses to my email partition?

Ubuntu :: Saving Emails In Evolution?

Jul 18, 2010

Im my office everyone uses Windows but I use Ubuntu (and I love it) for interaction with windows only apps I use a windows VM in virtual box but I use evolution for my emails as I think it runs far better than outlook could ever dream of running.

From time to time we have to save emails for proof of orders etc. As most of you may well know outlook saves emails in .msg format but evolution saves them in .mbox format. At the moment I am saving them in .txt so the windows users can read them in notepad. I really need to be able to save in .msg format though to ensure all the formatting remains and the other guys in the office can open them in outlook.

Is there a way for me to either 1. Save directly to .msg format from evolution or 2. convert .mbox to .msg after i have saved the email? Google is usually my friend and comes up with answers for me but on this occasion hasn't been any good.

If I don't find a work around for this I will have to revert to using Windows (which I really dont want to do).

Ubuntu :: Evolution Opening Previous Emails?

got an annoying issue with Evolution mail client. When I open an email (ie in a new window), if I deleted that email, the previous email opens up in that window. What I would like is when I delete an email that window closes just leaving evolution open. Seems like this is some silly little option that I am missing

Ubuntu :: Export Emails From Evolution To Outlook?

Jan 4, 2011

try to get my Evolution emails into Outlook, I can now say that the whole process is quite simple. It seems clunky the way that I have done it, but it is free and it works!First download and this Free Converter to convert *.mbx into *.eml If the link is broken, it came from [URL] and you just have to find their link to the mbx to eml converter.


1) Open Evolution

2) Highlight the emails that you wish to convert, CTR+A for all in folder

3) R-click and "save as" and call the file anything you want with an mbx extension (example: inbox.mbx) - note: you may need to save this somewhere that Win/linux both recognise as Windows refuses to recognise drives formatted by linux. ie. save on a drive that has been formatted in FAT32 or NTFS


1) Open mbox-eml-extractor.exe (the free converter, probably in your downloads directory)

2) Click "Add" and select your *.mbx file that you saved

3) Click "process" and select the output directory (I just created one on the desktop)

4) Open Microsoft Outlook Express NOT OUTLOOK!! It comes free with your windows install

5) Open the directory that you saved the *eml files (the "process" ones) and drag n drop into MS outlook express

6) All of your emails should show up in MS Outlook express now

7) Click File->Export->Messages

8) You will not be given an option where to save it but if you are curious, go to Tools->Options and click the Maintenance tab and the "Store folder" button to see the path

9) After it has exported now open Microsoft Outlook and click File->Import and Export and select "Import Internet mail and addresses" and press next. Choose "outlook express" etc and follow the bouncing ball so to speak.

10) You have managed the frustratingly and seemingly impossible. Now if Evolution soon gets an export to pst (or whatever the extension is) we won't need this thread anymore

Debian :: Unable To Sign Emails With GPG Through Evolution

Feb 28, 2016

I get the following message when I try to send an e-mail with the option "PGP Sign" in Evolution:

Code: Select allCould not create message.

Because "gpg: skipped "67449612": No secret key gpg: signing failed: No secret key", you may need to select different mail options.

I have "Preferences > Mail Accounts > Edit > Security > OpenPGP key ID " set as 67449612, which is my subkey for signing, and this configuration has worked properly until two days ago when I upgraded a bunch of packages with evolution and gnupg among them. Since I am not sure this is really a bug or what package would it belongs to I am asking here first before submitting any bug.

I believe signing works and the secret subkey is "find-able" because I am actually able to do the following without any errors, and this is why I don't understand the error given by Evolution:

Code: Select all$ gpg --output random.sig --detach-sig random.txt

You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
user: "Rock Storm <rockstorm@gmx.com>"
4096-bit RSA key, ID 67449612, created 2016-02-21 (main key ID C96832FD)

$ gpg --verify random.sig random.txt
gpg: Signature made Sun 28 Feb 2016 11:47:47 AM CET using RSA key ID 67449612
gpg: Good signature from "Rock Storm <rockstorm@gmx.com>"

My gpg's keys configuration, notice that the "defaut-key" option in gpg.conf is commented out. This configuration worked for sending signed e-mails at least once before the upgrade.

Code: Select all$ gpg --list-keys rock
pub   4096R/C96832FD 2015-12-13
uid                  Rock Storm <rockstorm@gmx.com>
sub   4096R/7C2F5752 2015-12-13 [expires: 2018-03-12]
sub   4096R/67449612 2016-02-21 [expires: 2018-03-12]

[Code] ....

From the bunch of packages upgraded the ones I believe to be related to Evolution were the following:

Code: Select allgnupg:amd64 (1.4.20-3, 1.4.20-4)
evolution-data-server-common:amd64 (3.18.3-1, 3.18.5-1)
evolution-common:amd64 (3.18.3-1, 3.18.5-1)
evolution-data-server:amd64 (3.18.3-1, 3.18.5-1)
evolution-plugins:amd64 (3.18.3-1, 3.18.5-1)
libevolution:amd64 (3.18.3-1, 3.18.5-1)
evolution:amd64 (3.18.3-1, 3.18.5-1)

I searched current known bugs in Evolution and I could not find anyone related to this.

I tried downgrading it to the previous version but I wasn't able to downgrade every package related to Evolution. Curiously the previous version for some of them seems no longer available:

Code: Select all# apt-get -qq update
# apt-get -s install evolution-data-server=3.18.3-1
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Version '3.18.3-1' for 'evolution-data-server' was not found
# apt-cache show evolution-data-server | grep -i version
Version: 3.18.5-1
Version: 3.12.9~git20141128.5242b0-2+deb8u2

Anyway, downgrading only the following four packages did not resolve the issue, and I am still getting the same message in Evolution:

Code: Select allDowngrade: evolution-common:amd64 (3.18.5-1, 3.18.3-1), evolution-plugins:amd64 (3.18.5-1, 3.18.3-1), evolution:amd64 (3.18.5-1, 3.18.3-1) libevolution:amd64 (3.18.5-1, 3.18.3-1)
Current package's state:

Fedora :: Evolution Temporarily Not Sending Emails?

Jun 21, 2010

i've got Evolution as an email client in Fedora 12.ve got only one IMAP account configured, which seems to be working OK. However, temporarily it is not sending emails. I write an email and hit send/receive and get error. "Error while sending message" ir seems that it is downloading messages, but not sending. There is a quick, but annoying solution to it: restart Evolution. As soon as it is restarted (close and ope the application) it is working OK for some time.

Ubuntu :: Evolution: Can't Open Links In Emails Since Upgrading To Firefox 3.6?

Feb 10, 2010

Since I upgraded my browser to Firefox 3.6, I've been experiencing this problem: when I click on a link in an email, Firefox doesn't go to that link. Instead, a new instance of Firefox is started (even if I've already got an instance of Firefox running), and that instance just opens my homepage. Of course I can work around this problem by right-clicking on the link, selecting Copy Link Location, then manually pasting the URL into Firefox. But I'd prefer to use just one click rather than 6.I'm using the latest official Hardy version of Evolution (, and I've got Firefox 3.6 set as preferred browser (or "default browser" or whatever it's called in Ubuntu).

Ubuntu :: Evolution And Exchange 2007 - Reading Emails Offline?

Jan 21, 2011

I have a little problem with Evolution and Exchange 2007. I have managed to connect to the Exchange server without problem using MAPI and I can access my emails fine.

The only problem I have is that although I have checked all the options to download messages and automatically synchronise account locally it won't store the email contents locally until I first look open it (or at least preview it).

Unfortunately I have over 5000 emails so this presents a little problem.

I don't know if this is a bug or just how evolution works.

Ubuntu :: Evolution - Store Emails At Linked Location After Upgrade To 11.04

May 11, 2011

Way back in the day (7 something I think) I had made my .evolution into a link pointing to a very large harddrive. That said, I've never had a problem as evolution happily grabs and stores my e-mails at that linked location. Since the upgrade to 11.04, I still have evolution but it does not store it where I expect it to store it. I still have my little .evolution link in my profile. I still have my old e-mails there but I have no idea where evolution is storing my new e-mails. I don't have any of my folders and my online e-mail stack is growing by the minute

Ubuntu Servers :: Get Email Address Pushing Emails Out To Phone?

Mar 26, 2010

I have a domain hosted with some remote host where I pay $10 a month and they provide me with, among other things, a bunch of email addresses. One of these addresses is my default address I use for everything and is blackberry@mydomain.com. I no longer have a Blackberry, I switched over to a HTC Hero with Google Android so I'm wondering how I could get that email address pushing emails out to my phone. Android supports Exchange but the licenses are too expensive for me. Is there an Ubuntu alternative to make this work somehow?

Server :: Causing Crontab To Not Email Blank Emails

Aug 3, 2011

I've currently got a crontab line that looks like the following:

*/5 * * * * /usr/bin/php -q /etc/backend/cron.php | mail -s "Cron script output" whiteydude@gmail.com

The script works fine - it runs every 5 minutes and checks if certain environmental variables are set in place - if they are, it prints an output. If they're not, it dies.

The problem is that when it dies, it still sends me a blank email - one every 5 minutes, every time the cron job runs.

telling it not to send if it's blank?

I'm assuming some type of dirty awk script could do this, but I don't really know my shell well enough to do that.

I'm not good at putting these things into words, so let me write some psuedo code to explain what I mean:

*/5 * * * * /usr/bin/php -q /etc/backend/cron.php | if (STDOUT != '') { mail -s "Cron script output" whiteydude@gmail.com }

EDIT: Unfortunately I'm running on CentOS, so I can't use mail -E . Apparently that's a FreeBSD thing.
