John - as far as I understand your question: with Eudoran (I do not 
use mail.app), I have set up various "personalities", each of whom 
has its own smtp, outgoing server, return mail address, name etc.

So I can send and receive mail from various email accounts that I 
have with various ISP, seamlessly and at the same time.  All accounts 
are checked, when I do "send and receive".

Some ISP do not enable you to "relay", that is, pretend to be someone 
else other than your true account ID.  Some do.

I do not know if these facilities exist within Mail.

In spite of its ancient-looking interface, I stick with Eudora 
because of its simplicity and ease and speed of use.
