Arrow Evolution Multiple Identities


Curious about something.

Been using Evolution for awhile, and my wife had been using Windows Outlook still.

But now, she wants to start learning Linux (isn't my wife cool?)

Well, she wants her email setup but I can't seem to figure out how to setup multiple identities in Evolution.

I want it so that when you log in, it prompts you to select an identity, so there is actually a seperation from my email and hers.

Appreciate it.

Why not just create her an account on the box? Then she can play to her heart's content and won't wreck your setup.

The pc. Create another user account for your wife - that means that you can log in as you and have everything running the way you like it and she can log in as heself and have all as she likes it.

I see

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?

Unhappy Evolution mbox corrupted!!!!!!!



Hi all:

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.

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance.

Calix.

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.

And welcome to the board.

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?

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.
