Novell Evolution has been a popular open source Linux based email client, but in recent years it has started losing its popularity — users are migrating to other popular email clients such as Microsoft Outlook.

Novell Evolution has also been included as a part of GNOME (a desktop environment) since its version 2.0 was released. This software provided multiple functions that includes support for email, calendaring, contact management, and tasks. Novell Evolution stores email messages, address book contacts, and configuration information in files that reside in the .evolution directory in the user's home directory. This application creates MBOX files without extensions. The 'Mail' folder that contains different mailboxes is stored at:

'C: \Documents and Settings\Administrator\.evolution\mail'

Though the users who wish to migrate to Windows from Linux find Microsoft Outlook a suitable alternative to this program, there is no easy way to move all your emails from Evolution to Outlook.

With joining new office, it wasn't feasible to continue my work on Thunderbird email client. My old emails were still needful for me. Thankfully, I had used this tool for migration from Thunderbird to MS Outlook 2019 and believe me it works!!
