I am going to be getting an iMac in the next few months. I see that its possible to use iMessage on Mountain Lion.


I was wondering if its possible to set up iMessage on my iMac so that iMessages I am sent to my iPhone do not so up on the iMessage on my iMac, and if so how do I do this?



Thanks in advance

    It is possible to do what  you ask. The way to do it would be to sign in to Messages on your iMac using a different ID from the one you are using on the iPhone. If you use the same ID, you will get the same messages on both devices.


    Best of luck.
