    I am planning on rebuilding my Mac because I forgot the password to my filevault, and I am wondering how can I back up all of my email? I do not have mobile me and I don't want to get it just yet.

    in the top menu
    Mailbox > Archive Mailbox

    it will export a file that you can import later once you set up your new accout.

    how do I import them? I already made it into an archive like that to see if I could get it to work, and I haven't been able to for some reason...

    File > import Mailboxes

    then select the mbox radio button
    then navigate to the file

    hopefully this helps.
