    I've got my own, personal .mac account, and have just been given another .mac account (and a new macbook) by my school, for communication/homework purposes.

    I setup iDisk using my own .mac account, as I got the 4GB deal, so wanted to use that storage for documents, etc, rather than lugging the macbook around. Now I've started to setup my "teacher's" homepage, but everytime I publish using iWeb, it goes to my personal .mac account.

    Is there anyway round this, apart from constantly logging in and out of my iDisk/iSync?

    Thanks

    I just created a second account for my friend's web site that I help her update. It comes in handy for when company comes over and wants to check their email or something as a Guest account. Helps if something were to screw up with my normal account too.

    Thanks for that. Now I have two problems:

    1. I switched the .mac account on my original computer account and tried to publish the site - came up with an error "Error publishing F.1 Work to the site" or something like that. Do I need to remove things like periods and spaces?

    2. I also created another computer account, to try out your suggestion - how do I import the site I created on my original account? No options in iWeb.

    Thanks for your help.

    You need to copy the file domain.sites from /Library/Application Support/iWeb into a folder that your new account can access. I'd guess moving it to the Shared folder would work.
