Hello, I hope some of you people can give me some advice on this one.. Yesterday I turned off my computer, just the way I always do it. It seems to be quite normal. When I turn it on, the first thing that greets me is the "Welcome to iChat AV" box, bragging about the new features and wanting me to set up my iChat. The Dock is reset to the standard dock when you first install the OS. All my mails are deleted. (Tho I can still see the mailboxes if I navigate to library > mail) I'm on 10.3.9. Anyone heard about this before? I wonder what could have happened. Safari bookmarks are still here, with the addition of the standard "Apple" ".Mac" "Amazon" and so on bookmarks. Safari log is gone. So is the preferences. (Apple+T won't give me a new tab, for example.) Anyways, the most important thing is the mailbox, and how I can "retrieve" my mails. I'm afraid to just add the old mailaccounts, in case all of my old mails will be deleted then.. Anyone got ideas? ...I guess this is why a backup is a good thing..
