I have found these two packages. The last date stamps found stored e-mails are from 04.04.2012. Evolution is not used as the main e-mail client on this machine.
There was a problem with the machine. It died during a port upgrade leaving it in a but undefined state. After fixing the hardware, I deleted everything (pkg_delete -a), updated the ports tree and started compiling. Ports which did not compile (like evolution) were installed as package.
As I started from scratch, I believed the notes in UPGRADING should not apply and I ignored all.

This did not help.
Should I try to downgrade?
I also tried to install from source but I am not able to compile:
checking for Kerberos 5... ./configure: /usr/local/bin/krb5-config: not found
configure: error: You specified with krb5, but it was not found.
===> Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please run the gnomelogalyzer, available from
gnomelogalyzer is not able to tell what the problem is.
I tried not to use kerberos from the base system. Could the problem be linked to this?
I never specified this ' with krb5'. Do you know which port uses this?
