    Sorry if this is not the right forum but this is where I 'hang out' so to say so I wanted to ask here.

    I want to export my off line emails and folders (not accounts) running snow leopard to my new air running lion via a usb stick.

    Anyone got an easy way to do this? Can I just copy the mail folder on my computer and then import that into the new mail? Will it set up all my folders again? thanks

    Wherever the army needs me.
    From what I've read if you copy the Mail folder form your ~/Library and import it from there it SEEMS to work for some people. You can also grab the preferences as well from ~/Library/Preferences/

    Hope this works for ya.

    If all else fails, you could do it through time machine.
