Move Mail App files to new machine.
Old iMac died. Have external HDD with backup files. Running 10.8.2 on new iMac. Specs below. Am currently working on doing clean installs of all my software. Mail.App. Do not want to use Migration Assistant from external, unless simple way to just move old mail boxes and nothing else. Now comes the million dollar question. Would like to bring all my old mail boxes onto my new machine. Used to be simple, but things have changed. From my searches on the subject, seems ML hides them. Could someone please assist me with this? Your help will be greatly appreciated. Any further info required, just ask.

Copy everything in this folder (code below) from one machine to the other using a thumb drive or external disk.
Click the desktop to bring focus to the Finder, then hit shift-command-g (all three keys at once). Paste the below path into the box that pops up and hit enter. This will open a Finder window showing all your mail folders. Just copy everything in that folder.
Do the same thing in reverse on the new machine. I'm assuming here you have Mountain Lion on both machines.
