How do I restore my Mail?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have just done a clean install of OSX and want to restore my Mail and Mail settings from a backup. However I don't know what files/directories I need to copy back.

Please can someone help me with this.

    As far as I can remember when I had to do this, the only folder you need to bring back is the ~/Library/Mail

    Obviously, make sure Mail is closed when you do this.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Oh, and ~ means your home directory.

    just copy the whole folder (i think Alex got it right - ~/Library/Mail), run macmail, look for "Rebuild" in one of the menus
