Craig,

Not sure what the answer is to your specific questions about Migration Assistant and emails, photos, etc.

If you do a clean install on a dedicated external drive and then use Migration Assistant, you can then test the new install to see if everything came over or not. This method leaves your Sierra boot drive intact and unharmed.

Alternatively, you can clone your Sierra boot drive with CCC to an external drive and then update to your preferred OS on the clone drive. This method also leaves your Sierra boot drive intact and unharmed.

With either method, if something messes up then it only messes up the new OS install on the external drive. You can boot from the new OS install on the external drive and test it out to see if everything is as it should be before committing to it.
