I have to change my @virgin.net email address which I've been using for ages to a @gmail.com one. I'm unsure what will happen if I use the new Mail setup assistant on my iMac - will I then have access in Mail to the two accounts prior to me closing the old one? That would be great.


I also have mail set up on a MacBook which I use when travelling.  Do I just do the same on that?


Any other tips gratefully received but please note I'm not great at this - no jargon please.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    You can have more than one email address at the same time.

    In Mail Preferences > Accounts, click the + sign and add a new account.


    You old one will still exist, even if it does not get much use.
