If you meeting the following criteria, this Macworld tip is you.

  1. Use OS X + Mail.app
  2. Have multiple e-mail accounts
  3. Like keyboard shortcuts

I had always wondered if there was a way to switch accounts without using the mouse, but never did much to look into it. Turns out that you can do it using Apple’s built-in keyboard shortcut System Preferences pane. I went with Ctrl+[number] for each of my four accounts.
