Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That is what I figured you meant. I coudl do that, I have just always used one account. i thought of doing that, but if I can just setup multiple identities, it would be prefered. Do you know how to do that?
I have one problem with my evolution mbox, I try to move some mails to a folder but can't because the error message told me that my mbox is corrupted and cannot be fixed after a resynch of folder.
Can anyone know some way to fix it.
I try to move the local folder (were mbox resides in) to another place and restart the evolution re creating local folder, then I move the local folder content to this newly created and that doesn't fix the problem.
Calix - if this were Microsoft I would say that you could run the folder fixing tool. Ximian gives this answer when I searched on "corrupted folders".
Please don't tag onto other people's problems. It makes it very confusing to read and answer 2 people's questions. Far better to create your own because it will get the attention it deserves rather than being hidden artway down Suse_surfer's posts.

That isn't quite what I am looking for. I am aware of how to do that. But the thing is, I dont want to see her emails at all. I want it to be 2 seperate identities. We start Evolution, It prompts for an account to log into (ie. Marta or Kevin), we click on which one we want. I open mine, I see my emails; she clicks on hers, and sees her emails. Even the possiblity to password protect it?
See what i'm getting at?
Post Script #1 - What are other good email programs
Hmmm - I see what you mean. To be honest, I don't think Evolution can do that. You're thinking of something like profiles in Outlook, I think.
Mozilla has a built in mail client (click on the envelope at the bottom of the browser or go via your internet menu in start menu. Or I suppose you could reinstall Evolution to a different place on the hard drive and see if that would do it. I don't know how running 2 copies would work though - and may mess up any updates to the program.
I would say either use a seperate mail program for your wife or create her own Linux account on your pc.
