    I keep my Mail folder on a secondary drive. I just reformatted my main (boot) drive and I'm trying to figure out how to relink Mail to that secondary drive folder rather than re-download many, many GB of emails from the server. Appreciate any help!

    I suppose that you made a symbolic link, like this:
    Code:
    link -s ~/Library/Mail /Volumes/<volume>/Mail
    You have to close Mail before you do this.

    I do not know whether this will work.
