What's the difference between the two choices when I create an email user?
When you add an email user to your Business Mail account, you'll have to choose how the user will access the new email address. Here's a quick comparison chart:

Using Yahoo and/or another mail program, such as Outlook Express.
Never with Yahoo Will use another mail program exclusively.
|1. The user can access mail with Yahoo webmail, a desktop email program, or both.||1. The user will access mail only with a desktop email program.|
|2. Will need a Yahoo ID.||2. Doesn't need a Yahoo ID.|
|3. Because Yahoo Mail is a Web-based program, the user can check email even when away from the office, using any computer with Internet access.||3. Will not be able to use Yahoo to check email online.|
|4. Current Yahoo users can use this email address with their existing Yahoo accounts or create a new Yahoo ID.||4. The Business Mail owner or administrator will create a password for the user to access the email address.|
|5. Can be made an administrator of your account.||5. Cannot be made an administrator of your account.|
|6. Will get Yahoo SpamGuard Plus, which automatically filters suspected spam to your Spam or Bulk folder, and significantly reduce the amount of junk mail in your inbox.||6. Will not be protected by Yahoo spam tools, which means the user will receive all messages in the inbox, even those which might have been filtered by Yahoo SpamGuard Plus.|
We strongly recommend option #1, as it offers the most flexibility, plus protection from spam. However, if the user doesn't want to sign up for a Yahoo ID, option #2 might be the right choice.
