    Hi all

    Firstly, many apologies if this is in the wrong section!

    I got 16GB iPhone on Friday and have decided to upgrade my MacBook to Leopard - I know, I know, long overdue! Anyway, I have backed up what I need and am planning to clean install. I don't have a great deal on my Mac and hence feel a clean install is better. Also, I want to set my mail settings up from scratch as my .mac (mobileme) is now going to be my primary email and my isp (pop) email will now be secondary - previously it was the other way round. I will not be backing up & restoring my iTunes, as again there is not much in there (apart from the iPhone settings). Once i have done this what will happen when I connect my iPhone which was paired with my iTunes on Tiger? Will it just sync to the new iTunes & I'll have to re-setup the settings? Most importantly what will happen with the mail accounts set up on my iPhone, which were created when I first plugged my phone into my Mac on Friday? If it easier just to reset the iphone and start again I may well just do that.

    Any help would be appreciated....

    I upgraded a few months ago: backed up all my data (iTunes, mail etc.), upgraded to Leopard, restored all my data, synced iPhone and everything was exactly as before. "It just worked", to coin a phrase. If you don't back up your iTunes I would have thought it'll just ask you to set up the iPhone as a new phone since it won't recognise that it's been synced to that Mac before.

    Think I'll backup iTunes anyway, try it without restoring said backup and see what happens. If that isn't successful I'll restore iTunes backup and try that.

    I'm sure everything will be fine - just wanted to be sure!
