Multiple Identies in MacOSX Tiger's Maill.app

01/06/07 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet

When I originally wrote my post on setting up Mail.app for IMAP, I hadn't found a way to set up multiple identities for one user account. There is a way. I found it by accident. I was setting up another account, and my mouse cursor was hovering over the email addresses input box when this appeared: "Enter one of more email addresses, separated by commas." So, I added some aliases that I have for that account and now they appear in the drop down box for Account when composing a new mail message. So, if I've set up an alias for dealing with an online service, and I need to contact that service, I no longer need to expose my "real" email address. Cool.

Here's a some screen shots.

BTW, the "Edit email aliases" button that appears on the first screen shot, only appears for dot-Mac accounts, as the second screen shot for an IMAP account shows.

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
