    Could you clarify what you are trying to achieve? Your question is a little vague!

    Are you looking to find out how to access the mail for your default address through your Mac?

    Or, as your question seems to suggest, are you looking to find out how to set your Mac as being the default email address for your website. If so, this doesn't really make any sense.

    Email set up

    I'm sorry. You're right, I guess I wasn't very clear. I am looking to find out how to set up the mail box on my mac as the default address using my email from my website.

    For example if I were to email out of my mailbox on my mac the return address would read dfoss@foss-face.com

    I hope this makes more sense. Thank you.

    Dave

    Thanks! That makes perfect sense.

    You would need to apply the relevant setting in your email program. How to achieve this therefore depends on the email program you are using.

    The best suggestion I can make is to check the help options within the email program you are using on your mac, or use Google, or any other web search, to find instructions.

    Just in case you're using the Apple provided 'Mail.app'...

    1) go to preferences (cmd , or in the 'Mail' menu)
    2) click on 'Accounts' from the top toolbar icons
    3) click on the + symbol in the bottom-left corner
    4) choose 'POP' from the Account Type menu on the new screen that comes up
    5) fill in the rest of the blanks
    6) when you go to close the prefs window (or switch to another pref panel) you will be prompted to save the new account you just created

    All other mail programs such as Eudora or Entourage will be something similar, just poke around the menus

    :)
