Duff-Man says...your Safari stuff is in home/library/safari (look for bookmarks.plist to be specific)..and your mail stuff is in home/library/mail.

I would suggest that if you are going to reformat that you just back up your whole home folder as there are other things in there you'll probably want....oh yeah!

you need the mail pref file as well... user/library/preferences com.apple.mail or something
