    Hi all,

    I've copied all my most important emails into a "On My Mac" folder in Mail, hoping to back them up easily.

    I can't find it in finder though? I've looked in ~library and in mail package contents. Anyone know?

    You can archive the inbox/folder. Right-click it and choose "Archive". It will be extracted as .mbox file and should hold all your data

    Well this is embarrassing...

    I was so busy looking for "Show in Finder" when I right-clicked that I didn't see the "archive" option. Never occurred to me that it would be like backing up a regular inbox!

    I'll go nurse my bruised ego...
