    Hi all,

    I am an new mac user and have used Windows PCs for a long time. Outlook has been my default mail program. I am now setting up mail on my Mac Mini running Lion and need some help.

    I can setup 2 accounts (me and my wife) on the mail, but everything is together. I can click on each name and only see one account, but what I would like is to be able to launch the Mail app and it prompt me for which account I would like to view. That way email for me and my wife are totally separate.

    I searched on the web and found only one post and it stated you could not do this. I was surprised as I have used many email clients in the past and have been able to on all of them.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I just found a post in these forums that I missed the first time. It looks like this is not doable. If this is not correct please let me know.

    you might want to create separate accounts; you'll have your own desktop, mail, documents...and it's easy to switch from one account to the other.

    google it...
    (am running out..)
