    The same way you move all your other data from your old Mac or PC to your new MacBook Air: Use the Migration Assistant. If you've already moved everything else over, only select what you further need to move such as your email.

    "two" migration assistants?

    I have an inkling you may be doing it wrong, here's how to use Windows Migration Assistant:

    U r so right - only one migration assistant - never the less. When I activate it on my new mac and made sure they both at on the same network - it can not find my old mac? Frustrating

    Assuming you didn't already start a new account on the new Mac, then no.

    If you already set up an account on your new Mac, then yes that was probably not the most efficient thing to do but now you need to let it finish.
