Would like to move mail box to new OS X installation


Contributing member
Yes, I was beta testing a new virus program and the unthinkable happened. It literally toasted my OSX installation. I want to wipe the drive clean and reinstall OS X. I need some help.

I was informed I could move parts of the mail application or documents into the newly installed system. Which files do I move to my spare hard drive?

Where do I place them in OS X after the fresh install?
