    I updated to Leopard with an Archive and Install, but did not migrate my entire set-up. I've got everything working well except 2 things:

    1 - in iTunes I have all my music, but my playlists aren't there. I have my Previous System file available, but I'm not sure what to move to bring the playlists back.

    2 - in Mail I'd like to get my old mail I had put in other mailboxes.

    Any idea how to fix these two problems.

    Not sure you care anymore, but you can try what I did and might have success...

    Go to File -> Import, then find the /Users/me/Library/Mail/Mailboxes directory. Replace me with the username you are working on. You MIGHT be able to find multiple .mbox files within that directory. Import each one and maybe you will get your old stuff back.

    Let me know if it works. Might still be there after all these months...
