Is it possible to export mail accounts from mail?

I can't find this option.

Not quite sure what you are asking for.

Export it to where? A text file? Another program? Synchronize with another Mac?

Export what? The account info, or all the email?

You can synchronize this with another Mac through .Mac. You may find other mail programs can load the info from Mail. Not sure, I don't use other email programs.

For the few pieces of info that make up the Account info, it's easier to write them down then to go looking for an export solution.

I use the "import" option on other mail programs to accomplish this task, just like mail "imports" from any other mail program.

the difficult task comes in when its setting up the account on another computer... and .mac isnt an option at this time.
