    I'm in the process of switching from PC to mac for internet useage and I'm having difficulty finding a feature in Mail.

    How do I set a separate reply address for one of my email accounts? In outlook express on my PC, I can use 1 email address to send the mail but it tells the client on the other side a different email to reply to automatically when they hit the reply button. My issue is that I have verizon DSL which doesn't let me send from my main email (which is not verizon). Is this just impossible on the Mac? Thanks for any replies.

    Okay, in Mail, go to the Preferences panel, under the "Mail" menu. Select whichever account you want to edit, on the next screen the "email address" field is your reply-to address. If you have multiple accounts listed, you can use a different address for each one, and then when writing emails it gives you a pop-up menu to pick a "from" name.

    this answer your question?
