I am the proud owner of a new 11" Macbook Air, and I'm in the process of transferring my files from my old 13" MBA. I'm not using Migration Assistant because of some systemic problems I've been having - I don't want to move the problem over to my new Mac & would rather start fresh.

I found this link about moving Mail "manually":

http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=12010148&#12010148

This successfully transferred all the folders I had on my old Mac, which is great - but my inboxes aren't there, and my accounts aren't set up. Do I still have to set up my accounts manually?

Also, is there any need to follow this instruction if I moved my "On My Mac" folders over via a network:

You will also need to copy the /Home/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist from the MBA to the same location on the iMac.

Thanks very much for any guidance...
