It works fine to receive, but how do you send with it?

I can send fine if I use my gmail server, but then the receiver thinks I sent it from gmail (duh). I don't want that, because that's my personal mail, hotmail and yahoo are for all the registration and msn.

On the track
I'm waiting and hoping that httpmail will release a version for 10.5!! I hope so. I re-mailed the guy who made it and asked him about it. I hope he e-mails me back with good news.

In your GMail Accounts settings, you can add extra "From" addresses. Then, in your Apple Mail Accounts settings, edit the e-mail address you've set for the account. Change "name@domain.com" to "name@domain.com, name@hotmail.com". When you next compose an email in Mail, you'll see a drop-down of From addresses

I've just updated all my stuff to my @mac email and my webmail email as I'm trying to phase out my Hotmail one.

Hotmail sucks, I wish I had never got an account.

Pity I have to have an account for MSN Messenger since Apple doesn't want @mac users using that email on MSN Messenger.
