The user that evolution is running as.  What other user would it (or
could it) use?

If you are getting permission denied errors then yes, the cache needs
to be writeable by the user - but why would a user's cache directory
not be owned by the user themselves?

Hi Pete
It is writeable by the user, and readable, but still getting cache
error messages, 
I suspect this is known about and will dissappear when linux Mint 19 is
released at the end of the month with Evo 3.28, instead of 3.18 which
is in use at the moment.
There are applications that although started by a user do not run as
that user, hence the question.
