    Is there any way to migrate just Mail from my early 2011 MBP to a 2011 MBA? I want preferences and all my old mail.

    Copy Macintosh HD / Users / YOU / Library / Mail / and the "com.apple.Mail.plist" in Macintosh HD / Users / YOU / Library / Preferences / to your MBA into the same locations.

    Found via a www search.

    Thanks! This gets me most of the way there because one of my machines is still running Snow Leopard which is where these items reside. However, in Lion their paths must have changed. Does anyone know where the corresponding folders need to be placed now?

    Why do you think the paths have changed? Because you can't see the Library folder, which is hidden by default?

    how to access the hidden Library folder:
