OSX Disk Space: Save space after Mail upgrade

Good tip:


Migrating Mail from Lion to Mountain Lion leaves behind a folder containing previous attachments.

Attachments in Lion were saved to ~/Library/Mail Downloads, but under Mountain Lion, Mail is now sandboxed, and the new path is ~/Library/Containers/ Downloads.

During the upgrade, the folder contents are copied from the old location to the new, so the old location can be deleted to save some space.
