    Hey --

    Setting up Mail, I used bad names for my Mailboxes. I right clicked and went to the option "Rename Mailbox' but it's always greyed out. How do I do this??

    Thanks - MD

    I think you're wanting to rename the accounts in In Box, not the mailboxes/folders you can create to organize your e-mail. Those can't be renamed by right-clicking on the name in the list. Go to Preferences > Accounts & highlight the one you want to change & type a new name in Description:
