You can use 

APT::Default-Release "testing";

in your /etc/apt/apt.conf to keep your system mostly
at testing (or stable, if that's where you're at) and
then use apt-get -t to ask for a given distribution
when installing a given package.

But, I suspect a large package like evolution will drag in 
some serious dependencies like the sid-version libc6 and
a host of others; you might want to use -s first to see
what's going to happen.

man apt-get
man apt.conf
