Hi all.

I'm running 10.5.8 on a mac pro intel 2.66.

When I click on mail, it goes to my verizon account.

It all works fine.

My question is, where is all that mail (and contact info) stored?

I'd like to maybe put it to a separate hard drive as I run some music recording programs, and it's suggested that the mail may slow things down.

I do have mail sent and or received for a few years stored.

I've also put together a mailing list that I would like to keep for future send outs.

Part of my question would also involve possibly reinstalling my operating system. I did this several years ago and all my mail contacts where lost.

So where would I find my contact list and is it possible to put it on a separate drive to be referenced ?

Thank you for your help.

QUOTE Thanks
