    Hi All

    Just wondering if you can have Mail open twice and have one open for me and one for my wife. Maybe have different icons to differentiate between the two.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks

    The best thing to do might be to make one user account for each of you and enable fast user switching (Link). Check out the Accounts preference pane in System Preferences. :)

    (...or you could just add both your accounts to Mail, in the Mail preference -> Accounts. You would - literally - share the inbox (though each account will have its own inbox "under" the main inbox), but you may choose the sender when composing new mail...)

    (...or you could download Thunderbird and use totally separate Mail clients...)
