Hello all

I'm looking for a way to export all of my password and settings so i can transfer them to my newly reinstalled Panther. Keychains, and mail settings are causing me the most problems.

In keychain i've found the export button but it's greyed out?

And in Mail i have no clue how to export my settings.

Any help would be great, i'd love to just clone the whole OS but i have corruption issues (hence the reinstall) so have salvaged what i can and am starting afresh.

Mike

After a reinstall you will need ownership of the recovered library.

Log in as root and do this before copying the folder back to the correct location.
