Import Mail

Recommended Posts

Seems like I should know this already :huh: but how do I import mailboxes along with the messages when I move from one computer to an account on a shared computer? I got all the mailbox folders when I went through the new account assistant but no messages when the computer I am abandoning was in Target Disk mode. Any ideas? My guess is that I have to put all the messages and mailboxes into a public folder on the Target computer? Has anyone dealt with this lately? Thanks!

If you want to move ALL Mail data from one machine to another simply grab the following move to the corresponding location on the other Mac:

 

User/Library/Mail (grab the whole folder)

User/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist

Thank you Matt!

 

 

In the meanwhile I figured out the solution on my own and it worked perfectly of course. I had originally used the Mail Imposrt Assistant and it didn't work. After numerous attempts using the assistant I finally got angry and reasoned it out on my own - no help from Apple. Well, my wife and I are now on the road for a two year overseas assignment and both have all our mail on one Macbook Pro. We love this machine!

 

Thanks again Matt!
