To get started entering your account names and passwords, click one of the big-name logos (Gmail, Yahoo, whatever)—or click the button below the list. The Mac is smart enough to feed the account information here into the right programs (Mail, Calendar, Contacts, and the Share buttons described on Notes on Disk Swapping).
