Following the crash of my first iMac I have recovered the mailboxes from the old hard drive and, after changing its name, have copied it to the new mailbox file Library/Mail/Mailboxes.

When I go into Mail it doesn't show. What do I need to do to see it?

Addendum:

Actually I copied one mailbox with a changed name not all of them.

The solution is actually quite simple. Go to File/Import Mailboxes; at "Import From" I chose Apple, otherwise appropriate application; Continue and Choose file from source. In my case this was Library/Mail/Mailboxes.
