    I just created another user account, just for work. I have it all set up. There is just one thing. I have a gmail account set up, so that mail receives the messages. The only problem is, is it depends which user i am logged into. That user only will receive the messages, and the other account won't. Is there a way to have them both have the same database, so i have all my mail in both accounts?

    Thanks a lot

    you can do this a few ways. I would just set the gmail account up to IMAP, and put the same account info into both user accounts.

    You can also do two different email addresses, and just have account#1 automatically forward the email to account#2 through gmail web interface.

    why have two mac user accounts with same email anyways?
