    Mail and passwords
    I wish to limit access to my mail program with passwords, as opposed to needing to use a password to download the mail. With the latter, anyone opening my mail program can see all the already-received mail, whereas I wish to prohibit any other use from being able to open the mail without the password.

    I am using mail ver 3.6.

    Can this be done?

    If you are sharing your Mac with other people, best way forward is to create a dedicated user account for each of them.

    Separate user accounts? Will this also effect how the others use and see all other programs, or only mail?
