    I just got a new computer, I am going to be backing up my previous computer
    today, how do I restore my mail to my new computer? With the new
    motherboard,cpu, etc, I have to re-format my hard drive. If someone could
    please tell me about this that would be great. Thank you.

  2. Hi Catherine :)

    It should be enough to simply go "File -> Export -> Messages/Accounts". Then
    take the files that the export wizard creates, and back them up safely
    somewhere. When you've reinstalled WMDB on your fresh install, just go to
    "File -> Import" and bring back the files you created before.

    Good luck!
