It depends on the version of Evolution - older versions used
~/evolution, newer versions use ~/.evolution. Copy the relevant one
across to the new home, then fire up Evolution. It may then launch a
helper which converts the old format folder to the new format. Keep a
backup of the original folder until you're completely happy that all the
settings have been transferred - Evolution has a number of
idiosyncrasies that can cause problems.
