Does anyone know a simple way to check IMAP mail online as though it were a YAhoo email account? I am referring to Apple's itools, I can check it using my Yahoo account which downloads them into yahoo which is good but when I reply people end up with my yahoo adrees when I'd rather they had my mac address. How does everyone else check their mac address when away from their primary computer i.e. online?

when you reply it's logical they will get your yahoo adress, coz you are sending it from there

the only thing you can do is filling the mac.com adress in your yahoo mail settings as a reply-to address...

am i right?

Aye, I realise that is why they get the yahoo address but I would've liked a way to avoid this - a simple way to access the mac mail without having to go through YAhoo etc. Yea I have change the eply to adress as my mac one but it still comes up with all the yahoo ads. Apple should add a Web interface for accessing their mail methinks....
