mac mini tiger restore email from Mac's Mail Program
Posted on 2009-12-29
My mother's mac mini which had the powerpc and tiger on it had a motherboard problem and I'm about to purchase a new mac mini. I believe this mac mini which is just the previous version has leopard (not snow leopard) but I'm considering on upgrading it. My mother has her emails on the old hard which was working.
1) I'm wondering if I took out this old hard drive would I be able to browse the folders and retrieve the emails from tiger's Mail program? If so, what folder would those emails reside in and what files do I need to back up to the new computer?
2) Where would I then put those files in the new mac mini with leopard or snow leopard?
3) Is it worth the upgrade from leopard to snow leopard? I think it's $35.
