Hi guys, I've put a new HD into my MBP and restored from TM backup. All good but when I try opening the Mail app I get "Import Failed, An Error occurred during import. Make sure you have available space in your home folder and try again."
What in the heck? Has anyone encountered this?
Thank you!

Let me just say and ask, do you happen to use CCC or SD! and have a cloned backup of your previous drive?

CCC= Carbon Copy Cloner
SD = Super Duper

Maybe try using Migration Assistant but it's a bit too much of an all or nothing thing plus the fact some of your user data may get duplicated.

Or try googling how to move things (your email) manually with a google search for whatever OS X version you're using.

Hi Patrick,
I've restored from the Time Machine. I use CCC to back up other drives. Perhaps I should start using it for the main HD form now on.

Hi Patrick,
I've restored from the Time Machine.


Were you finally able to recover ALL your email and all other data from your TM backup?

And definitely use CCC with your boot drive assuming you have critical data to backup. You can continue using TM as well if you like.

BTW: Welcome to ehmacs.ca that I just noticed.
