Hi Palt:

 

I use Lacie's SilverKeeper (Freeware) to backup my whole Users folder (excluding cache files) onto an External Hard Drive.

 

If you'd prefer to backup the individual paths (instead of the whole Users directory), here are paths for Tiger (10.4):

 

For Apple's Mail: Hard_Drive/Users/Username/Library/Mail/IMAP-EMail_Address

 

For Mozilla's Thunderbird: Hard_Drive/Users/Username/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/ProfileName.default/ImapMail

 

For Thunderbird, it seems to place symbolic links or pointers instead of the actual IMAP E-Mail. It's probably better to backup their Mail folder: Hard_Drive/Users/Username/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/ProfileName.default/Mail

 

Good luck!

 

--danyel :)
