I just recently upgraded my Mom's iMac to OS X, and she lost all her mail for some reason. The HD was formatted to HFS, not HFS plus, so I backed it up on my machince, and then wiped the drive, format, install, and copy the old contents over. However, upon restoring the backup, OE didn't have any user information or email. So Where does OE keep it's user profiles? (I'm hoping that somewhere The mail still exists)

I'm going to stick this is OS X third party software, so I can get a little more exposure. It does apply.

The OE info is kept in the Documents folder. If you backed that up, it is there as one file (the database).
i look in your general direction
