Hello Experts,

Really hope to get help here....

Last night I formatted my hard drive. I am using time machine capsule.
I wanted to manually restore the MAIL and bring all my emails, folders and settings back.
I have followed few of the "how-to" online yet none of them works.

Here is what I did:

I Copied the folder Library -> Mail from the backup the current folder Library -> Mail
I could not find in the Library->Preferences-> com.apple.mail.plist

Am I doing something wrong?
