Managing Accounts

You can set up Mail to receive e-mail from multiple e-mail accounts and from different computers. As you work with multiple accounts, you can use the Accounts pane in Mail preferences to change the order, rename, or delete accounts. Account order indicates the mailbox list order and helps determine which account (if not specified) Mail uses to send an e-mail message. If an account changes, or you no longer need it, you can rename or delete it. If you're using an IMAP or a .Mac account, mail stays on the mail server so you can access it from any computer. If you're using a POP account, mail downloads to your computer unless you select an Accounts pane option to keep a copy on the mail server.
