    No1. I'm trying to set up my girlfriends yahoo.co.uk to mail... I managed to setup my gmail to mail with no problems!! Is this possible?

    No2. We swap between users alot and its a pain typing in the passords all the time!! is it possible to set it up so we can swap users without having to type in a password all the time - but still have a password like on the first attempt for security?

    for #2 do you have fast user switching enabled? I can't remember if that allows you to go into the other account without having to type password.

    I dont think yahoo gives away free pop access like gmail does so i don't think you can set up mail with yahoo mail. And the switching without a password not sure if OS X will allow pass less accounts.

    In the US, you have to pay to access your Yahoo emails with a normal mail client. I'm not sure about a UK account.

    I wish I knew how to do this. When I first set up my computer, I didn't put passwords on my accounts so I could switch without entering a password. Now I have passwords on the accounts, but really, it isn't that big of a deal to type them in once you're used to it.
