IMAP accounts were not impacted and my Exchange account was not impacted
either. I guess this is because their storing cache here or there is not
account configuration related.

But, I have a local maildir account I use for local email storage, which
implies a user configuration entry to specify where you want to store
your email, $HOME/.evolution/local/mail/myaccount in my case. When
upgrading, content was moved to
HOME/.local/share/evolution/mail/myaccount but configuration was still
pointing to $HOME/.evolution/local/mail/myaccount.
