    I'll be updating to Leopard soon. What's the process of moving your Mac Mail to another machine? Is it as simple as just going to "import mailboxes" and point to the mail folders on my current drive? I'm not overwriting my current build, doing a fresh install on a new drive and keeping my Tiger as a backup.
    Any tips would be great.

    Thanks...

    also import your

    com.apple.mail.plist
    com.apple.mail.searchhistory.plist

    from your old user
    this is found in /users/<username>/library/preferences.
