Currently Being ModeratedJan 14, 2011 10:05 AM (in response to pomme4moi)Hello.
I don't have the answer, but have a similar problem. I have created 2 accounts, one each for me and hubby. The main inbox shows all our emails together, ie, it is not private. And our own separate accounts, whilst the incoming emails are in the separate inbox, I, and therefore, he, can enter and read everything. I don't want this. I want to be able to buy presents for him without him knowing. As far as I know, I only set up an account for him and one for me, but as stated, 3 exist. Any ideas?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6)

If you set both email account up in Mail, they will have separate Inboxes (seen by clicking on the small black triangle to expand to show each one), and if you enter the Gmail SMTP twice, taking care each time to give it a different name, and use each account respective email address to Authenticate it, then they will coexist nicely, but not with complete privacy.
Complete privacy is only available with separate User Accounts. In one User Account the underlying files could be read even if two Mail folders were allowed.
