My wife and I each have a MacBook Pro (mid 2012) and are on th same LAN.

Whenever I create a "Rule" in my Mail 6.2 Account (in Preferences) it seems to be "added" to my wife's Mail Account also.

We do not use iCloud for Mail.

Any thoughts on how to make different "Rules" in each of our Mail Accounts ?

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Rules are applied to emails according to the rules you specify. If you want them to apply to specific accounts, add a condition to the Rule.


    Add a Rule such as if "To" contains (your wife's email address), then perform the other actions you specify.


    Separate User accounts on your MacBook Pro would obviate this cumbersome requirement.
