    i have a couple of questions, first what is the best way to do a remote login? I have two macs and a pc. The pc is in my truck and I would like to be able to log into my Imac to access emails and files. The problem is that when I used I could not read what was on the 12x12 screen. Is there a was to log in and have the info adjust to the computer I am on and not the imac?

    Thank you Colin

    For accessing files use an ssh capable FTP client with remote login turned on, then FTP securely into your mac to access your files.

    For email, I would say it would be better to setup imap or pop on the PC to check the email messages locally.

    I'm assuming that you are remote desktop accessing your mac when you say remote login....and if so, then you could also open system preferences and adjust the display size from there, or adjust it before you leave your home.
