    Ok,
    interesting situation. My fiancé's Macbook died a few weeks ago. I have taken out our HDD and have it in a dock attached to my old MBP. For some odd reason, i can boot from it ( gets stuck at the grey apple screen) so i wanted to import old mailboxes from her old HDD user's library. However, when the drive is mounted as an external drive i can't get to the library folder in her old user account. I have tried a few things in terminal, but that didn't seem to get it done. ( am a terminal novice) but i would like to get her old mail into the new user account on my old mbp, I was thinking about migration assistant, but didn't want to take her whole user folder over....just mail.

    any help would be cool

    thanks
