    I've just upgraded to 10.5 (early G% with no camera) but Mail didn't load my old mail boxes so I can't read emails I need. 1) Can I get Mail to load them or 2) where on my Mac are they kept so I can deal with them, please?
    Thanks for any help!

    Any chance you're running into this issue? Have you fully updated to 10.5.7? The .mbox files which can be imported into Mail are located in ~/Library/Mail, and importing will only work for POP email accounts, not IMAP.

    Thanks, No. I have upgraded to 10.5 (from 10.3), at least that's what About this Mac, tells me. Mail works fine, but when I opened it there were none of the mailboxes that my old Mail had. I had them for ebay, paypal, & 10 others. As I can't see them I can't read even the emails I had before upgrading. Does upgrading delete old mailboxes? If so I'm stumped & a lot if info I want has gone. Firefox has all my old bookmarks.....
