I have one account, willmcdaniel.com
i have set up 3 emails. each one is a seperate email address at willmcdaniel.com
each has its own idenity. will@willmcdaniel, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org
their is only one log in to get to them all, but each has its own account...does that make sence?
I do not have to log in to each of them seperately I just have to log in to get to the account.
thanks for all your help, sorry I can not be more specific....Wll
i have my web site hosted by a place called ipower, i have one account there.
i have a log in and password to get to the admin part of the site.
so that is what i mean by one account.
there in the admin part of the host site i was able to set up 3 different email "accounts" will, info, and email@example.com, all of them for my www.willmcdaniel.com page.
they are pop accounts. are they considered three accounts or just three different or alias email from the same account?
is it possible to get all three of them to be set up in the mail program??
i have them set up like that on my old PC...I would be more than happy to call you or let you call me about this topic...my number is on my web page.
does that make sense???
If each additional email address shares the same user name, incoming mail server and password as the initial/primary email account/address, the additional email addresses are aliases to the primary.
You cannot access an alias email address to a primary account/address as a separate account with Mail.
To access the alias email addresses, add each alias email address to the email address field separated by a comma for the primary account already created with Mail under the Account Information tab for the account preferences.
What identifies a mail account are the User Name and the Incoming Mail Server, not the Email Address. Only you can know whether each of these accounts has a separate User Name or not. There is no way for me to know that.
If the User Name is the same for all of them, then this is what is commonly known as aliases. Read Mail Help’s “Adding multiple email alias addresses to an account” article for more information on how this works in Mail.
If the User Name is different for each mail account, however, as appears to be the case here, then you must set up a separate mail account for each of them in Mail.
