    Hi, is there an easy way to transfer Mail accts beween users on the same Mac? Can this be done by changing permissions?

    Here's my situation. A company needs me to bring my Mac into their office for the next two months (for graphic and video editing). Currently, I only have one user account on my Mac and it is set up to work properly with all of my external hardware. My Mac will end up being used by several people and I would like to keep my email archives private.

    Can I create a new password protected user account for myself and shift the email permissions over to this new account?

    Are their some instructions on-line anywhere that might show how to do this?

    Any help is trememdously appreciated.
    Thanks, -Rob

    Why not set up a new user account that everyone else can use, leaving your account as it is. That would be simpler.
