    The worst thing happened to me today.

    When I restarted Apple's Mail app today I was asked to create a new account.

    But when I use Spotlight I can still see my received and sent email.

    My account's still in /Users/King/Library/Mail/[email protected]/

    Any and all ideas on how to fix this would be most appreciated! :D

    Hmm, so this is a Gmail account and you are downloading mails via POP? That means the emails are still in the server. Try re-creating the account then download your mails again.
