Run Mail as another user

The hint isn't just for Panther, I think (correct me if I'm wrong), but will work in previous versions of Mac OS X as well.

But, you are right--if you have Panther, it seems that about the same amount of typing would allow you to switch users using Fast User Switching, which is *seriously awesome,* IMHO. :-)

No. I did try sudo -u second_user /Applications/Mail.app/Contents/MacOS/Mail in Jaguar like 6 monts ago, but second_user does not ave permissions to use first_user's windows server.

The problem with fast user switching is that your iChat disconnects, your iTunes stops playing, and you have to type two passwords every time mail comes that you need to check: one to get to the other account, and one to get back.
