How can I set up 2 email accounts in Mail

It's me again.
I'm trying to set up Mail 2.1.3. in 10.4.11. I have 2 email accounts. I can enter one just fine but it won't take another. When I try, it says that I "already have a POP account". How do I set up 2 email accounts? I see where I can enter the 2 email addresses by separating them by a comma. But the 2 addresses have different passwords and the password box takes only one password at a time. Any ideas?

It's hard for me to tell by what has been written so far, but it may be referring to what you are entering for the account description. That is, in Mail Prefs > Accounts > Acct Info, for each account it has several entries: Acct Type (that you can't change), Description, email address, full name. If the first account's description is POP, then make the second account's description POP2. I use terms like, "home", "work", and "school" for my accounts' descriptions.
If this is not what is going on, please write down every step you do, and every entry you make, as you try to configure your second email account and post it back here. Naturally, do NOT disclose your actual email address(es) or mail account login name or its password to us here.

  • How can I set up multiple email accounts on my nok...

    Just got the E71x, it's awesome. I set up my Hotmail account on my Mail for Exchange or whatever that app is called. Can I set up my Gmail account as well? That's the more important account of the two. How do I set this up?

    NME is a good alternative. In the beginning it was bugy and I stopped taking it onwards in my future considerations. Nowadays it is grown to a serious service. Def. something to count in your options!

  • How can I set up multiple email accounts in one folder in Thunderbird?

    Hello; first time poster here.
    I own a business that has several email accounts. I am trying to create a folder (titled my business name), then set up all of the email accounts for my business so they all are in that one folder. I have tried for two days to figure this out and can't seem to do it.
    I have been using Outlook, but it has too many whistles and bells and is way to slow, so I thought I'd give TB a try.
    Can anyone explain IF this is possible, and if so, how can I do it?
    Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.

  • How can I set up an email where the mail account is totally different to the email address?

    The email account (and password related to it) is in the form "xxxxxx.ndonet.com." The email address is "xxxxxx.ndirect.co.uk." There don't seem to be many email clients that allow this and at present I am having to use Pegasus. I have tried manual configuration in Thunderbird but without success. Is it possible?
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks to you both for your suggestions. It is very helpful.
    I have solved one problem but have one remaining. I can now send mails having configured TB with the ISP's pop3.hosts.co.uk and port 995. This is working fine. Sending is still a problem. As I am currently in France I cannot test smtp.hosts.co.uk (587) directly. I usually use smtp.orange.fr. Under Pegasus this is set using Server TCP/IP port = 25 and Timeout = 15 seconds, which works every time. When I try TB with either 25 or 587, I get an error "login to stmp.orange.fr failed" and a further message "for unknown reason" although sometimes it reports "authentication failed".
    I am a bit out of my depth here and would be grateful for further suggestions. Thanks.

  • How can i set up external email account to show up in iCloud?

    I can access my Earthlink and Gmail accounts through my iPhone, but not yet through my new Mac. Didn't see a way in settings to do that in iCloud.  Any pointers?

    Open Mail, go to it's Accounts preference pane, click on the "+" button to add a new account and click on the Add Other Mail Account radio button:
    Enter the required info for that account and you're done.

  • How can I change order of email accounts in Mail on Mountain Lion?

    In Mail on Mountain Lion I have only two email accounts, but the wrong one has been set as default (because it was an account I had overlooked and added later). I cannot find how to change the order of the email accounts. One possibility is to delete the non-default account and re-add it, so that it becomes the most recent and thus (presumably) the default, but this would delete all the email messages in that account, which I cannot afford.
    It's a great flaming pain to try to remember each email I write to select the second account option, and yet I can find no way to change email account order---not in Mail and not in System Preferences. Dragging them certainly does not work.
    Can Apple have really missed this? Is there any solution?

    Comfortable with terminal...know how to edit using TextEdit:
    Open up a Terminal and use the following commands to change your Mail.app preferences file to an XML format – the default format is binary, and you can't edit this.
    cd ~/Library/Preferences
    plutil -convert xml1 com.apple.mail.plist
    Then, open this file com.apple.mail.plist with a text editor of your choice, preferably one that highlights XML syntax, but you can also use TextEdit:
    open -a "TextEdit" com.apple.mail.plist
    Now, look for the key called MailAccounts. It's value is an array, with dict children. Here, you'll find all your mail accounts in the order they were created in.
    You can now manually move these dict children around. Save the XML file and reopen Mail. Now, your Mail account order will be changed.

  • How do I set up my email account on my iMac OS Yosemite 10.10.2 so that the emails are downloaded to my computer and removed from the ISP server?

    how do I set up my email account on my iMac OS Yosemite 10.10.2 so that the emails are downloaded to my computer and removed from the ISP server?

    When setting up the email using Apple 'Mail' (version 8.2 (2070.6)) I do not get an option to set up my email as using POP.  I can go to Outlook from Microsoft and I get a chance to set my mail up using POP, however I would prefer to use the Apple supplied 'Mail' email programme as I'm using Office 365 and may not want to continue the subscription sometime in the future.
    Any advice on setting Mail to POP would be appreciated.  A not so Happy Wombat.

    provide a rescue email . How can I set a rescue email?  NOTE: I forgot my security question.thanks

    You won't be able to add a rescue email address until you can answer 2 of your questions, you will need to contact iTunes Support / Apple to get the questions reset.
    Contacting Apple about account security : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5699
    When they've been reset you can then use the steps half-way down the HT5312 page that you posted from to add a rescue email address for potential future use

  • How do I set up imap email account on iPad air 2

    How do I set up imap email account on iPad air 2

    You do not need to specify the type of account.  If its IMAP, when you add the account it will detect that automatically.
    Alternatively, you can enter a fake email address and password when adding the account, and wait for the process to fail, you should then get an option at the top to select between IMAP and POP3
    You can then change the details of the account to the correct ones.
