    I want to import all mailboxes (+account settings) from an existing user to a new user on the same mac (running 10.3.9)
    I need a fresh account for the same person due to some unexplained crashes.
    If i want to do that however and point out the folder to import from, i can't access that folder because it is locked to the 'old' account.

    How can i do this?

    As it turns out you have to copy the following:

    1. Users/user/Library/Mail

    2. Users/user/Library/Preferences/

    Here is a more detailed approach.
