    Question Evolution Mail Client

    Hi...
    The problem is that I need multiple user accounts [password protected] in mail client

    [In "Outlook" there is a option as "Identities"]

    Dose Evolution has some thing like that?

    [I download "Thunder Bird", it supports accounts, but does not support password protection for account!]

    Lot of people use my computer to view their mails, so each must have a protected account....

    Sorry, no. You need to create a system account for each user and let them log in. Otherwise, use Webmail in a browser.

    Re: Evolution Mail Client

    Yup, the thing is that you got to consider the Linux security model, which is user based. So after a user logged in and was authenticated, that user can then do things and save things. Allowing another user to use that same session, breaks the security model.

    In a webmail system the data resides on the remote server and therefore doesn't break the security model, until the user wants to save an attachment locally.
