Prevent data loss when deleting unused Mail accounts
Authored by: mithridain on Oct 09, '04 12:07:01PM

I used to use Netscape and Mozilla for mail on my Windows system. When I changed my ISP while using that, my old mail remained. I lost all my old e-mails when I changed ISPs and deleted the old one from accounts.

Since there is a potential for a great deal of data loss, the should inform the user that all e-mails associated with that account will be lost. If they haven't already, Apple needs to change this. It isn't that difficult to add a prompt to confirm or cancel.
