[BCAB] Mac help for a beginner?

Hi,

If we create two accounts, as far as I know that would mean two Apple IDs.
That would also mean purchasing some programs twice.  Or am I wrong?  Anyway
Outlook can do it, so why not this silly Email program <Smile>.

All the best

Steve

Hi Steve

Sorry if this sounds well short of your capabilities, but why not just
create two separate accounts and choose to log in as Steve or Angie?  In
that way, you can use Mail or anything else separately.  I am sure there is
some reason why you haven't gone down this route, so sorry if I have missed
the point.


Kind regards,

Hi David,

No it doesn't help at all, since you probably didn't read the message
properly <Smile>.

I know how to get to the inbox, but the inbox is unified, if you have more
than one account.  I wanted a non-unified inbox.  Looks like you can't do it
with Apple, you have to select which inbox you want every time.

Boring but there it is.

All the best

Steve

I have only just come into this thread  as I have been away for a week and
have therefore not read all the correspondence, but if you are asking how to
quickly get to the Inbox in Mail then simply press command 1 and you will
jump straight there no matter where you are in Mail. This is much more
efficient and easier than VO Cursoring around. You will also find that
pressing command key and other numbers on the Number row will jump you to
other useful places within Mail.

Hope that helps.

Ok from left to right, the default layout of mail is as follows:
Inboxes; Inbox list; Message preview pane.
Just stop interacting with the messages table, VO+left to inboxes & interact
with the list. It's VO+\ to expand or collapse menus.
