I keep all my mail on servers, so I guess I really haven't given 
evolution a chance to lose it.

One thing I have seen it do, however, is get its caches confused and 
refuse to show new mail. This happened just this last week where mail 
that was delivered to my mailbox last Friday morning didn't show up in 
the reader until Tuesday afternoon. The logs show it was delivered to 
the mailbox, but for some reason evolution wouldn't show it despite 
showing all sorts of other new mail that arrived over the weekend. I've 
hit this a number of times, and the work around was to delete all the 
disk caches and let them rebuild. Of course, you have to realize that 
some emails are not being shown to you before you know enough to restart.

On the calendaring side, on a number of occasions the Palm sync got 
messed up and duplicated all of my calendar events. For a while, each 
time I sync'd it would double the duplicates, causing 1, then 2, then 4, 
then 8 copies of each event. That was a royal pain to undo.
