How to transfer MailMate to another computer?

Reported by Zr3004 | December 13th, 2019 @ 03:48 AM

I need to change machine due to a hardware issue and I need to find out how to transfer MailMate to another computer?

I have a lot of accounts and email stored locally and do not want download again.

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    Before launching MailMate on the destination machine, copy the following folder and file:

    ~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/

    If you use the “Custom Location” feature in the General preferences pane then you also need to copy the folder saved at that custom location.

    Let me know if this does not help. Note that the Library folder might be hidden on your machine. Google “library folder hidden” for general help on that.

    I've done the same, a new computer. But, I've already opened MM on the new computer. I'm also checking fewer accounts. I just want to re-establish all my 'saved' smart folders. Can I do just that?

    @Donny: Yes, you can just copy Mailboxes.plist. It might reference non-existing accounts if you had configured such mailboxes, but MailMate should handle that gracefully (such smart mailboxes just won't work). Let me know if that is not the case.
