    That's the only way. However, I've permanently unhid each user's Library folder so I don't have to deal with those other methods, despite mommy Apple's attempt to keep me from harming myself.

    are you able to assist again? I remember going to the finder then Go with option pressed trying to find each user email account and not sure how to get these files. I have to take my IMac for warranty work and have all the backup in BUT want to get the email library for each. Thanks!

    Log into each user account, click on the Desktop, OPTION-click GO, and Library is now available. Alternatively, while in each account, run this command in the Terminal app, and make it visible (might require logging out and back in):

     

    chflags nohidden ~/Library

     

    That should hold until the next update. I only have one test account, so that's not anything I really worry about.

    This worked last time with Lion, I saw the email folder and clicked, email opened, so I knew it was correct. The email folder seems different with Mountain Lion - has 3 files:

    mail lost & found

    Sync Alert

    V2

     

    Ideally, once I have mine, I log into the other account, run the Terminal with other user name and should have her files.

     

    Seems to be different from Lion and want to make sure I have this - Apple has to change my hard drive, I have plenty of backups but want to save the two individual mail libraries in separate files.

     

    With Lion, I saved the library, clicked opn it and email opened. That did not happen with Mountain Lion - are you able to assist further, or anyone,??

    Yes, Mail on ML is different than what's on Lion. Here's what's in mine, which I only use to test it out. You'll have to go into V2 for the mailboxes. I suggest just copying each Mail folder into a separate folder, so you don't mix them up.

     

    UnsyncedRules.plist

    SyncedRules.plist

    SyncedFilesInfo.plist

    RulesActiveState.plist

    V2

             RSS

    Mail Lost+Found
