When I bought my iMac I had the old data from my PowerBook transferred. Some of the old mail did not transfer. Is there a way to specifically transfer old mail to a new Mac. I opened up the Migration Assisstant on both computers and could not see how to just deal with Mail. I'm getting rid of my PowerBook and want the old mail. Instructions on how to wipe the PowerBook would be appreciated also. Some of the old mail shows up in iCloud but not all of it. I tried to reset the incoming mail to the same iCloud setting as is on my new iMac and now nothing shows in incoming mail in my old PowerBook. How do I see incoming mail again? I tried using a USB drive but I couldn[t get the mail to transfer into it. I tried emailing it and it wouldn't go out over the server. The sent mail in my PowerBopok and my iMac are the same as is the Trash.


Thank you



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), iPhone, Parallels and Windows 7, TC
