I just got a new mac mini and will soon quit using my imac that I bought around 2006 10.6.8. I am setting up Mail. Can I get it to work the way my old mail did The problem In the past my gmail would download to mail and if I deleted an email on my computer in Mail, it would delete. I have 1172 old emails online on my gmail account and I want to keep them there. Now when I deleted the messages that downloaded on my computer mail program, they reappear. It seems as if it is syncing with what is online. My husband's yahoo account downloads to Mail. Before I only got what was in his inbox. Sometimes people send me mail to his address, this way I have can check this on my computer. When I set up his yahoo account in Mail, all of his folders and emails downloaded. No big deal, I could delete the emails and they still remain on his online yahoo account. The problem is that it downloaded all of his folders and mail won't let me delete the folders. It's nice to have the new mini mac but I have to figure out what is different, especially on programs that I use a lot. Also I backed up my documents, music and photos and more on an external hardrive. I would like to transfer folders and the emails they contain from the old mac that are somewhere on this external drive. Does anyone know how I find them? I basically put all the files in home folder on the external drive. I didn't know if I would find them under Library or what. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
