Ask Mac Questions and Get Answers from Experts ASAP
Should those prove fruitless please let me know.
I will try some of these later. I'm informed that dinner is ready so I'll have to get back to my Macintosh problems later. Hopefully the links you provided will help.
The .pdf you sent showed how to delete the "extra" account I had by selecting the account and clicking on the "-" at the bottom. I had been to this page but didn't connect the "-" at the bottom. Thanks, that seems to have worked.
As I set up the "Just Answer" for 30 days for $68 I'll probably be having more questions.
Background: I have an old desktop G4 933 MHz machine that I've had for 10 years. I recently bought a refurbished MacPro 2.8 GHz quad core that I'm moving things over to. I did a complete backup to an external drive.
Right now I'm working on Mail which I primarily have downloaded over the years since I didn't want to lose things as I changed providers. I spoke with the tech at the local MacMall and he said that exporting mail from my old system (Tiger 10.4) would not be compatible with importing into Mountain Lion on the new MacPro. He did say that once Mail was set up on the new machine, I may be able to go into the user > owner > Library > Mail and drag messages from the backup into the new folders I've created in the new Mail. He also showed me how to "see" the library - although I forget the keyboard keys to hit.
I if you can lead me through the steps to move my mail folders from the external backup to my personal folders "On my Mac" I'd appreciate it.
The only other way I can figure out how to do this is to send them to myself from the old machine (1000s of emails)

OK, I'm trying to find out from just answer.com how things work. I'm trying to get it set up for a one month subscription ($68/month on the website). It sounds like experts such as yourself get paid from this and then there is a tip(?) option when we rate you. I will have several questions as I set up this new Mac, but I'm just not sure how the finances are handled - and I have to be somewhat cautions as I initially thought that for $68 I had unlimited questions and answers for a month on the subject of "Mac" (I'm starting to think this may not be the case).
In any case, hopefully I can pull mail messages from my folder "Saved humour" from the backup of my old mail machine and put the messages into the folder I created "Saved humour" on the new mail on the new machine.
Thanks, I sent them an email. Hopefully I'll find out more before I go bankrupt or waste too much of your time.
