comment Is it possible to store “on my mac” local folders on a network device?
+1 - I moved my mail store to a TrueCrypt volume, and subsequently, to an encrypted .DMG, doing exactly as you described. My recollection is that if the TC volume wasn't available, mail behaved rationally, issuing an appropriate complaint. With the .DMG store (tested just now), the OS pops a password dialog for the volume. I canceled the dialog and Mail said Mail can't continue because the folder where it store information is unavailable. I've never seen it corrupt my mail store (it can't; the store is locked) or lose its mind and wander off into the weeds.

comment No entry sign on MacBook pro when installing snow leopard from 'new' disc onto new HD
What they told me was that the hardware would have been modified on a L or ML machine and not to expect it to accept SL anymore. Always worth testing on a machine in hand, but I probably wouldn't buy and count on it. Thanks.

Good to know - I needed a SL-capable machine (Apple refurb) and watched the refurb store for the occasional ones that would be delivered w/SL. Are they downgradeable simply by installing SL or do they need something else to enable it?

Reconsidering my previous comment: I recall inquiring about refurbed iMacs offered with 10.7+ that would, in their day, have been 10.6 capable, but which Apple Tech Support confirmed to me on the phone could no longer be downgraded. Their specific advice was, "If it is delivered with Lion/Mountain Lion, it would no longer be compatible with Snow Leopard."

Correct but it is a possibility worth considering.

Changed MAC to Mac - not pedantry; it just doesn't make sense as Media Access Control.

comment Applescript to compare two lists of domains and eliminate duplicates
Yes, open a Terminal and go to the folder where the files are located (with cd foldername (assumes the folder is in your home directory). Then copy and paste Lauri's command into the terminal and press Enter. If you were going do to this often, you'd write a shell-script file with that command (the details of doing that are a bit beyond a comment in this thread).
