    Hi guys, I want to sync Apple Mail with several IMAP accounts. Can I change the application preferences somehow to make it store ALL the mail cache+attachments on an external drive ?

    Not sure if you can do this for just Mail, but you can move your entire Home folder (which includes your Mail data) to an external drive using this method. Only drawback to this is you will need to have your external disk connected anytime you want to log into your account.
