Good for you.  I need access to emails when I have no network
connectivity.  Ie on the road.  Which is why I download them all to
local folders on my laptop.

Yeah, once every 6 years when a folder gets 2GB of data in it, I have to
split the folder into a main folder and a sub folder. :rollseyes:
Evolution is obviously a really high maintenance, unreliable email
client.

**IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A NETWORK !**  What access do you have when you
don't have a network ?  If I have a network, I can log into my gmail
account and I have full access.   And if my laptop quits, I still have
full access via gmail.  What happens when your server quits ?
