Hope this isn't a dumb question.


I want to delete an email account from Mail preferences. A warning box tells me that all messages from that account will be deleted, along with the settings. Does that include emails that I've moved to local folders On my Mac (not smart folders)?  I don't want to lose past correspondence that I've carefully filed for offline work.
