    Clean install of mavericks on to a new drive...
    Moving from mt lion to mavericks...
    I don't see anything in migration assistant
    that enables me to specifically migrate my Mail folder.

    Can anyone clue me in here?

    And...
    Is anyone manually moving their mail folder
    from a drive with mt lion on it to a drive with mavericks on it?
    Any reason NOT to do this?

    Should be able to.

    Make sure Apple Mail is closed. (both Mac copying from and copying to)

    You need to copy the folder username/Library/Mail from the old Mac to the same location on the new Mac.
    You also must copy the file username/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist from the old Mac to the exact same location on the new Mac.

    (where username is your account name)

    You should be good to go then.
