no. Would also make zero sense.
But if you are only for Email : you can create in www.icloud.com 3 Email aliases to maintain different Mail adresses that all are sent to the one and only Mail.ID of course.
Say you want your main @me.com adress and use this to login to icloud :
in www.icloud.com you go to mail and click on the settings icon, there is an "alias/Adresses" item that let's you create for instance
FUNNYJOKES@me.com for whatever
NASTYNUDITY@me.com for adult stuff
SPAMEMENOT@me.com for one time usage
so .. all these adresses you receive mail from and can also sent. They all are jut aliases to the Main adress "firstname.lastname@example.org" and will land all in your icloud inbox on your Mac and idevice.
You can also delete aliases you no longer use or need.
I, as a single user, have a great reason to use 2 iCloud accounts on one computer. I migrated both my business and personal mobile me accounts to iCloud. I was unaware of only one account on a phone at a time. Untile the migration, i had no problem using these accounts on one phone. i am one user trying to use two exisitng email accounts.
Let's assume you have two iCloud accounts, A and B. A should be the one with your calendars and contacts.
You sign into System Preferences>iCloud with A and check off Mail, Calendars, Contacts etc. as desired.
Now you go System Preferences>Mail, Contacts & Calendars and add account B. This will be your 'secondary' account and will appear in Mail where you can collect and send as you would expect. You will not be able to sync any calendar, contacts or bookmarks data with B.
Hi, I seem to be having a problem with this. My husband and I share a Mac. We both have separate user accounts in this same Mac. However when I logged in to my user account and sign into my iCloud, it still shows my husband's iCloud contents (he is the prmary user of this Mac).
any suggestions on how to fix this so I can access my iCloud contents?
I'm having some unexpected issues with aliases and can not wrap my head around it.
I'll try to explain what happens with my setup.
I have a AppleID@me.com email address with iCloud.
I also made up to three aliases, with corresponding 'real names'.
Main for myself (primary) (real name: Bob)
Alias 1 for my wife and me (real name: Bob and Chantal)
Alias 2 for my wife (real name: Chantal)
Alias 3 for online purchases (real name: Marktplaats)
What one would expect an alias to do is this:
- I send someone an e-mail using an alias.
- When they receive it, it shows it came from the alias address with corresponding 'real name', and that they can't examine it in some way to get my 'primary' real name or address.
- Next, when they reply to my e-mail, it still shows at my receiving end, the alias address with corresponding 'real name', and not my 'primary' real name or address.
- Finally, if I reply to them again, it still shows it as my alias address with corresponding 'real name'.
The thing is that it works as expected (1,2, and 3) until I reply to the e-mail that people replied to me (4).
The 'real name' changes into my 'primary' 'real name' (the e-mail address is the correct one from the alias). If I accidentally send this mail they receive an e-mail from another person. I can manually set it correct but it's an accident waiting to happen to forget to change it.
This only appears to happen on Apple Mail in Lion and not in the iCloud web interface.
Is this a bug in Apple Mail? Are my expectations for aliases to high?
Are you experiencing the same issues?
Thanks in advance, Bob
