mail.app --> Personalities ? - Mac Applications & Software

This may have been asked and answered already, but I can't find any info. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough. Can mail.app be set up with multiple "personalities"? I would like to be able to set one up as my main personality and another one for my office information. Basically just change the "From:", "Reply-To", and "Signature". All other settings (i.e. pop, smtp, etc.) would be the same as my main. -- -=[cwa]=- chris at cwaiken dot net...

    Default mail.app --> Personalities ?

    This may have been asked and answered already, but I can't find any
    info. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough.

    Can mail.app be set up with multiple "personalities"? I would like to
    be able to set one up as my main personality and another one for my
    office information. Basically just change the "From:", "Reply-To", and
    "Signature". All other settings (i.e. pop, smtp, etc.) would be the
    same as my main.

    sort of. Apple doesn't really seem to want to encourage
    this sort of thing. Their very own mail servers are
    explicitly misconfigured such as to prevent one from
    doing it on them.

    The way to do it is to set up additional accounts.
    Put in bogus garbage for the POP server, the POP UserID,
    and go to "advanced" settings in the account setup
    window and tell it to never bother checking for mail.

    You'll still _receive_ all your mail the way you always
    have. But when you reply or compose mail, you'll have
    your choice of accounts from which to send it.
