How to setup email on Mac Mail?

  1. Open up Mail.app and press Command+Comma or Mail->Preferences to invoke the Preferences window.
  2. Switch to the "Accounts" pane and press the + button in the lower-left corner.
  3. Under "Account Information", fill out the following information:
    • Account Type: POP or 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
  4. 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
    • Outgoing mail port: 25 (If 25 does not work, try 26, as some ISPs block port 25)
    • Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL): NO
    • Authentication: same as incoming
    • User Name: email-name@your-domain-name.com
    • Password: your email password
    • Dismiss the window by pressing "OK."
  5. Back in the "Accounts" pane, switch to the "Advanced" tab and do not check the box marked "Use SSL" towards the bottom.
