    Go to mail help and search for backup, there's a mail help page that tells you which files to backup.

    Fortunately I haven't had to reimport any of my backups, but I'd imagine it's just a matter of overwriting the relevant files. I wonder, though, whether this would overwrite any of the messages you'd received after the last backup? That might be a concern.
