additonal mailbox

I need to change my email address but dont want to cancel my account and start again. I've set up an additional mailbox but how can i use this with mail on my MAC? I want to be able to access both from my MAIL programme.  Do I have to switch to OUTLOOK for MAC or is there another way?

Re: additonal mailbox

Hi JT100,


If you have a BigPond account, you can create up to 14 additional email address / mailboxes, for free on that one account.  You can also add several email address to your Mac email program.  

Firstly what you will need to do is make sure you know your email address and password,  Next go to http://www.telstra.com/emailservercheck and use your email address and password to log in, it will provide you with your email settings.  Use these settings to create an a new email account on your Mac Mail email program.


I have added a link to a Telstra Video demonstration on how to set this up.  Watch through the first  45 seconds and then you can skip to the 2 minute mark to see a walk through on how to set up an account on Mac Mail. http://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Bigpond-Email-Inc-Windows-Live/How-To-Set-Up-Your-BigPond-Emai...


I also found this 3rd party website (not associated with Telstra / BigPond)  which explains how to set up a second email account on the same mail program:



Hope this helps.
