How do I configure Mac Mail for my E-Mail Accounts?

 
  • Open up Mail.app and press Command+Comma to invoke the Preferences window.
  • Switch to the "Accounts" pane and press the + button in the lower-left corner.
  • Under "Account Information", fill out the following information:
    • Account Type: POP or IMAP (we recommend IMAP)
    • Email Address: email-name@your-domain-name.com
    • Incoming Mail Server: mail.your-domain-name.com
    • Username: email-name@your-domain-name.com
    • Password: your email password
    • Note that POP uses port 110 and IMAP uses port 143
  • Select "Add Server..." from the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) pop-up menu.

    Here are the details for it:
    • Outgoing Mail Server: mail.your-domain-name.com
    • Server port: 26
    • Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL): NO
    • Authentication: password
    • User Name: email-name@your-domain-name.com
    • Password: your email password
    • Dismiss the window by pressing "OK."
  • Back in the "Accounts" pane, switch to the "Advanced" tab and do not check the box marked "Use SSL" towards the bottom.
  • The rest of the process is short and sweet, and merely involves changing your preferences to enable POP access.
