I don't know how many people here actively use Evolution every day, but I do. I've noticed one thing about Evolution. That is that with every major release of Trisquel (and I'm assuming ubuntu) something important stops working.

The two big issues I'm dealing with under Trisquel 7 are that the trash won't empty when using IMAP and when I setup a caldav calendar Evolution isn't pulling calendar events in like it used to.

Has anyone else experienced this? What is the best course of action to work toward resolving these problems?

Installing Icedove?

Claws Mail is also not bad I think.

icedove works with every email provider I try it. pop3 and imap work by default and the addon enigmail is easy and works great.

The trash can be emptied by choosing the related entry in its contextual menu, i.e., the menu you get by right-clicking on the trash. Also, I believe messages older than a month are automatically removed from the trash.

I know there are alternatives to Evolution. By and large I like the way Evolution functions. I have clicked on the "empty trash" option but nothing happens. It acts as if it is going to empty the trash but then it never does.

It can take some time. Evolution tells the server to remove the e-mails.

I appreciate all the help that's been offered here and I don't mean to come off as a jerk. What I am looking for though, is whether or not someone can suggest a way to start fixing this problem?

Evolution is a major package in Trisquel as it is a major piece of the gnome desktop. To simply ignore broken functions of a core desktop system isn't right and it's not the way Trisquel should run. I'm willing to help fix it if I can. I'm not familiar with the package though and I was hoping someone else might be.

Problems you are experiencing might have been already fixed in newer versions of Evolution. You could try using GNOME3 Staging PPA:

If I enable this ppa are there going to be any repercussions? Am I going to end up with all the new gnome components and will this break my system?

You will "end up with all the new gnome components". Although there is a risk, your system should not break.
