Mail question
An interesting mail question-
I can't use my school's outgoing smtp server when im at home, so i setup my isp email (which my dad uses, he was kind enough to give me his password). my dilemma is this; i dont want to get his email. but i have to have the account setup in order to use the outgoing server. is there anyway to delete the inbox to that account, or disable something so that i will not get his email? thanks!

I forget where it is right now, since I am not in from of my powerbook. There should be an option where you can turn of the account, so that you do not receive mail. You should then have a choice of which mail servers to use.

I think if you select the account and then select the tab on the right you should find the option.

my response assumes that you are using Apple's "Mail" application
