    Does anyone know of a way to put the evolution (Linux email client) mail folder in a Truecrypt volume? Or encrypt it in some other way? I would prefer putting it in a Truecrypt volume. I believe the mail is stored in .evolution, and I have looked hard for a way to change the mail storage folder, but so far have not found a way to change it. So it looks like I'm stuck with the .evolution folder. I just need a way to encrypt it.

    Have you tried creating a .evolution symlink to a folder within a TC volume? That might work. I don't use Evolution, so I have no idea if there is a setting to change the location of the mail store (or if a symlink would work).
