My 11.10 installation is broken (long story) and I cannot boot to it. I have installed 12.04 on a separate partition, and can mount the drive containing my old Evolution files.
What I want to do is:
Import all the data from my Old (11.10) evolution location (
~/.local/john/share/evolution is the location I've seen in other posts, but I'm not sure which sub-folders I need) into evolution on the new (12.04) partition. Since the old OS is totally hosed, I can't boot to it in order to use Evolution's functionality to export and move folders around, etc, like I've seen in other posts.
Any suggestions on how I can rescue all the emails and contains from the old location would be greatly appreciated!
PS. I have a POP account and a Gmail account at the old install. The Gmail I'm not too worried about, but the pop mail is no longer on my ISP server, so I need a way to save it from the old location.
edit: I don't care whether I end up with evolution or Thunderbird as a result - whichever will work to import or migrate the old emails.
