Hello,

A Mac running 10.5.8 with Apple mail 3.6 stopped working yesterday after a power failure.  Apple mail is asking to setup the mail accounts as if they were never there.

Checked on the drive and I can see the mail folder for the user.  Backed up mail files but would like to restore apple mail to the previous configuration.

Any plist files or settings I can change to fix apple mail without having to setup the accounts again.

You can look for the PList files in your preference folder. If you have time machine at all this makes it a lot easier.
