    Backing up Mac Mail
    Hi Guys

    I really really really need your help!

    I am just about to reinstall Snow Leopard on my Mac book pro and i have backed up everything apart from mac mail.

    I have 6 mail accounts set up within mac mail and I was wondering if there was a way to not only back up all the mail but also the accounts so that I don't have to find out all the pop and SMTP info again?

    Use the step by step info from here.

    You might also consider using IMAP if your ISP supports it. For example, Google Mail (GMail) allows the use of IMAP or POP. And, it's always nice to have your mail and accounts backed up on the server - on their nickel not yours.
