Did you check for updates in Update Manager?  There was an update for Evolution but I don't know what it fixes.

Start the Synaptic package manager and in the search field enter evolution. After that you'll see everything that is relevant to evolution, select what you want installed, and Apply.

Latest stable version is 3.12.2, from Preferences -> Ubuntu Software Center, search for Evolution Mail (not just Evolution) and click Install.

<edit> You'll get version 3.10.4

The versions you install through the Package manager are stable, provided you didn't change from the default repositories to testing or unstable repo's.

Is there a reason why you would think that packages installed through package management would not be stable?

I tried unchecking the other packages which were not part of package manager and it was trying to install 3.10.4 but with no success.  There was an error.

I don't understand, where did you uncheck packages? When using the package manager, you should let it resolve dependencies, unchecking packages manually is not adviced.

Side remark: "There was an error." is not helping the expert here answer your question. Add some details!

Think you should close this question because you know how to install/get the latest Evolution on Ubuntu. And since you've posted your last error message as a new question here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Linux/Q_28539581.html - this one is finished.
