    I am wondering how i would go about setting up my email to work with the mac mail program tiger comes with. i use gmail for my email and wonder how i would configure the mac mail to work with that email server if possible. I also use cricket broadband for internet service if that matters.

    Thanks! :) :apple:

    You should just be able to go into mail preferences and add a new account. Type in your email address and password. Follow the given instructions. It is really easy and works wonderfully. I have both my gmail and Exchange account set up with mail and love it.
