I'd like to know why I can't seem to find my Mail data on an external 
hard drive when I use it to boot up my iBook.

Here's what I do:

I back-up my iBook's data on an external hard drive. To back-up my 
data, I drag my User file from my iBook to my hard drive. On those 
occasions when I've had to restore data to my iBook, I've had no 

Here's my hang-up: My iBook runs off of 10.3. The hard drive can boot 
with OS 10.4, but when I do this, the e-mail in my Mail program is not 
current. The Mail program on the hard drive does contain e-mail that 
was resident in my iBook under 10.3 when I first installed Tiger. But I 
am unable to move my current e-mail data from my iBook to the Mail 
program on my hard drive.

My question: where and/or how do I move my e-mail from my iBook running 
under 10.3 to my hard drive so that when I boot off the hard drive into 
10.4, I can view my e-mail in the Tiger version of Mail.
