    I've made a backup of my mail in mail.app from my previous mac, I thought all that should be required upon getting a new mac would be to copy ~/library/mail

    It works, but it doesn't remember any of my accounts. I've still got the original folder, and I can see my accounts listed under various POP3 email addresses, and although it loads my folders, it won't load my account inboxes. Is there a preference file somewhere i need to copy too?

    /Users/[your account]/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist, at a minimum.
