How do I configure my POP mail account in Apple Mail?




Setting Up Your Apple Mail

This tutorial shows you how to set up Apple Mail to work with your email account. First, you need to add the mail account to your control panel. Once you have added the mail account, you can continue setting up your Apple Mail for mail access.

To Set Up Your Apple Mail

  1. From the Mail menu, select Preferences.



  2. Select the Accounts tab, and click the plus sign(+) at the bottom of the Accounts box.



  3. In the Account Information screen, select POP from the Account Type list, and enter your information as follows:
    Description
    Enter the name of your account for example: My Mail, Work, or Home.
    Email Address
    Enter your email address (this must be configured in your control panel first).
    Example: jsmith@yourdomain.com
    Full Name
    Enter your name. This name will display to readers of your e-mail messages.
    Incoming mail server (POP3)
    Your incoming server is mail.yourdomain.com, where "yourdomain.com" is the name of your domain.
    User Name
    Enter your email address (this must be configured in your control panel first).
    Password
    Enter the password you set up for your email account (the one you used when you created the mail account in your control panel).
    Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)
    Select Add Server from the list.



  4. When the SMTP Server Options window displays, type mail.yourdomain.com in the Outgoing Mail Server field and leave the Server Port setting at 25 or change it to 26.
  5. Under the Authentication list, select Password and enter your SMTP user name (full email address) and password.
  6. Click OK.
    NOTE: If your ISP blocks the default port 25 to our network you will need to change the port to 26 which is our secondary SMTP port setup for such cases.
