Need help?
For further assistance please email

We will send you three pieces of information which you will need. The email address, password and mail server address. These are the same whatever software you use to send and receive mail.

Although the wording and layout may vary slightly, it should be straightforward and any variation will be minor. The settings will all be the same.

Step 1.
Open Mail (click it on the Dock or open it from the Applications folder).

Step 2.
If the "Welcome to Mail" assistant does not appear, then open the File menu and choose Add Account..

Step 3.
Fill in your Full Name, Email address, and Password fields. The full name information is your own name and is how emails from you will be displayed on other people's computers. This should be sensible and clear.

N.B. You can attempt to set up your mail address automatically, however if this doesn't work, you will need to manually configure it. Don't panic.

Step 4.
Uncheck the "Automatically set up account" option and click Continue.

Step 5.
Choose POP3 as your Account Type..

Step 6.
Give your account a useful description, this is purely for your information. It can be called whatever you want.
And then Enter your Incoming Mail Server, User Name and Password. These are typically in the form of:
Incoming Mail Server:
Password: ******

Click on Continue to proceed.

Step 7.
If asked for the incoming mail server security settings, make sure that 'SSL connection' is not selected. Click Continue to proceed.

Step 8.
Set up Outgoing Mail Server in the same way. Enter the Outgoing Mail Server details.
Make sure that you select "Use Authentication" and enter your User Name and Password.
Click Continue to proceed.

Step 9.
If asked for the Outgoing Mail Security settings, make sure that 'SSL connection' is not selected. Click Continue to proceed.

Step 10.
Check that you have entered your settings correctly in the Account Summary. Check "Take account online". Click "Create" to complete the process.
