If so, where on the harddrive is that data stored? I couldn't find


I know next to nothing about Mac's, but.......

Is your iMac running again?? If so, start SeaMonkey and have a look at Edit|Mail&Newsgroup Account Setting and select "Server Settings" on your mail account. At the bottom of this screen there is a "Local Directory" location. This is where all your profile stuff should be. Copy this over to your new MacBook, then set yourself up with a new profile (start the profile manager or use Tools Switch Profiles and select Manage Profiles) and point it to where you copied the old profile.


Your Profile is in your User's Folder. Go to Library ƒ / Mozilla ƒ / Profiles ƒ / Default ƒ/ sit ƒ / Mail ƒ ........ Before making a copy of the contents of the Mail ƒ delete the msf files

Make sure you do NOT have SeaMonkey open while transferring from the old to the new folder.

Good luck,
