I have two login accounts on my Leopard based MBP. I want to copy the settings / mail / etc from account one into account two. Like everyone I have lots of settings and data configured under one account that need to be copied to account two. Does this make any sense? thanks!

Copy those files into the account you want to use, change their permissions so that they are owned by the account you want to use and then place them in the proper locations in your ~/Library/ folder.
