I'll take a first attempt at this even though I've never touched

OK, so you're on Ubuntu...

That may just be a symptom rather than the problem...

My first guess is for you to carefully check what you have set in
Evolution for your mail account details.

Things to look carefully at for what your service provider requires are:

imap or pop3?
Do you need to enter your username and password?
incoming server name
outgoing server name

Anything else they might tell you.

If Evolution has failed to download your emails, then your mail should
still be there unread on a server somewhere. There should also be a
setting in the options for Evolution for mails to not be deleted/removed
from the server.

Sorry, only general guesses without further details.

Whichever way works best! :-)

Hopefully, an Evolution user can help you.

Or there are others to try such as Mozilla-Thunderbird for example, and

Good luck,
