Prevent Mail.app error messages with dummy accounts
Authored by: NikWest on Feb 18, '04 01:04:59PM

I am not sure why you need a dummy account at all (there are some reasons though).

But usually if you want to use different sender email addressed it is enough to just add a comma separated list of email addresses in the account's email address field (in the accounts preferences pane).

The point is to have different full names for the different accounts, the comma separated values will all share the same name...

thanx for the tip!

i use multiple "Full Names" depending on who i am sending to

unfortunately you can't use commas to separated multiple full names like you can for multiple email addys - i also tried using the same array of strings format in com.apple.mail.plist for "FullUserName" as for "EmailAddresses" but it just broke my accounts :((


oh well at least now i dont have that annoying exclamation mark :)

Well - that's news to me! I have a catch-all incoming address free with my domain registration which gets mail to the 4 addresses I use. I had several accounts in Mail.app set up as this hint describes: Not any more.

Andy.
