POP Mail Accounts Don't Make it through

I use SuperDuper to create disk images and replicate workstations we use here at work. The disk images have everything I can possibly set up including several users and their accounts like iChat and Apple Mail, etc.

I've always had good outcome with this procedure and just created a new image which included a Snow Leopard system for the first time. (yes, we've held back for a while for good reason, though.)

Now, however, when I restore the newest computers from my Snow Leopard image and open Apple Mail, the accounts I went to so much trouble setting up aren't there. (Actually, an IMAP account is there but the POP accounts I set up in each user folder does not make it through the imaging process.)

Does the mail plist key the account to the hard disk it's on? I've checked the permissions on each of the user/Library/Mail directories and they seem proper: drwx------

And, if there was any mail in the pop folders inside those mail directories, I can import the messages.

It's just a pain that I have to set up the accounts again after going to all that trouble.

Does anyone know a trick that might bring these accounts back after restore?

(Using SuperDuper 2.6.2 v87 and imaging 10.6.7)
