    Ok so I got my new g5 and I've got almost everything over from the G4 excet I cant get the mail to work right.

    I copied the whole mail folder and that brought in all my saved emails, drafts and offline mailbox folders. And I copied the com.apple.mail.pls file over which everyone says will set up the accounts in mail (I have about 3 accounts from different sites) but Ive tried it about 5 times with no luck, and I would rather have it set up for me then have to figure out all the passwords and then fuck with the ssl settings and shit.

    Help lol

    I guess 5th tries a charm lol tried it again and got it, now the only thing I need are the past email address (like when you type in the first 3 letters and it brings up recent addresses.
