It sounds like your using POP3 instead of IMAP and you didn't select an option opting to keep a copy of your email on hotmail.

 

It's been forever sinc I used Evolution but I'm sure you can copy the data files containing your email over to the Windows partition or keep the data files on a partition accessible to both operating systems and point Evolution there.

 

May I ask why your using Evolution instead of Thunderbird? I know for a fact that Thunderbird data files can be easily used between Windows and Linux.

No, but you need to select the option to leave a copy of the emails on the server.

 

To doing this in Thunderbird:

Tools => Account Settings => Server Settings => Check "Leave messages on server"
