Just for future reference, christm.

Does deleting the com.apple.mail.plist get rid of all your email account settings and you have to re-enter all the data? Or is it kept and safe somehow?

Ok so it does wipe your info then.

It's because I had told some members to do this to solve some Mail.app quirkyness and warned them they might have to re-enter all the user info but was hoping it would not do this.

Dang it! It does... :blind:
