Well thanks to everyone who read this post. 8 at this current time don't know whether it is a case of no one knew the answer or if it was case of I Just asked a "silly question" but i did managed to find the answer to my problem which was this:

? Copy all the files located in Home/Library/Mail.

? Copy the file "," located in Home/Library/Preferences. This file stores the preferences you set in Mail Preferences.

? Copy the folder "AddressBook," located in Home/Library/Application Support. This file is used by both Address Book and Mail.

Just thought I'd post here in case any other newbs had the same problem not trying to spam or bump my posts up

Thank you all
