Hi, I'm setting up my new iMac, love it, but i have some questions about the mail application. I'm just wondering what the benefit is of viewing my yahoo account (for example) in the Mail application instead of just opening my email through the yahoo website? Am i missing something??
Thanks.

Will

Thanks, I'll give it a try...so much to learn with the switch...one more question - both my wife and I are using this mac obviously without logging into individual accounts. I've set up my wife's email using the mail application, but is there a way to log in and log out of mail? i don't see an option for easily logging out of mail like with outlook. For example, I don't want my wife's email account to always be the default and always running (or mine either) so that either of us can view each other's mail. And does mail have it's own contact list or does it have to link to the Address Book application??
Thanks!
