I would like to split off two of my Alias Identities, that are on the same Apple Account, into separate mail accounts.


Can this be done?  Would I have to attach them to new Apple Accounts or can I just have multiple mailboxes on one account?


Thank you in advance for anyone that can help.

    Tarik - Wondering if you ever received any help?  I'm quite frustrated by this same thing.  I want to set up a new account - and I cannot find any guidance as to how to do this?  It seems it may be setting up an alias is the new way to go...

    I am totally with you.  Not the same old Apple.  Felt swept under the rug this morning when I called.  These seem like fairly simple questions - but the answers are buried under some mumbo jumbo.  I would LOVE to get rid of the, or the, or the  My regular email recipients are confused by all the addresses.  I think it's a big failing on Apple's end, and maybe they don't know how to resolve it?!!
