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
What emails are you trying to restore? If they are IMAP like (Gmail, Yahoo, etc...) then all of your emails live on their servers, so no need to pull them from Time Machine. If you do have POP accounts then we need to look at how things were backed up before you wiped the HDD.
Also, after you wiped he HDD, did you restore from Time Machine, or did you perform a clean install and then pull certain things down from Time Machine?
Thanks for your time.
