    Hi all,

    I use gmail and I'd like to be able to use all of the nice integration that iWork 09 has with Mail.app. However, I don't want mail.app to download any of my emails - I just want to be able to send from it. Is there a way to set this up?

    Yes. If you use a Gmail account, and have it set up in your Mac, go to the Gmail internet site, and create a filter for mail to you addy, and it can keep it there as a archive or delete it rather than forwarding it to your computer. I like gmail for this reason, that it acts as a pre-filter for me.

    You should be able to send mail, but receive no replies.
