Mac OS X Mail Setup

Open the Mail program by clicking on its icon in the Dock.

If it is the first time you have run Mail on this computer, you will be prompted for your email settings immediately. If this doesn't happen, please click here for further instructions.

Type in the details as requested - your email address is of the form:
This should be entered all in lower case.

Select the appropriate e-mail server (usually mail.<>)
The User Account ID is the same as your Internet Navigator e-mail address (all in lower case).
The Password is the one you chose when you set up your account (passwords are case sensitive!).

The Outgoing (SMTP) Mail Server is the same as the incoming server.

Once you have entered this information, click OK.
The Mail program will try to connect to the mail servers to check that the settings are correct.
If you are not connected to the Internet, an error will appear.
This is not a problem! It happens because Mail can't see the servers while you are offline.

You may be asked if you want to import your email from another mail program. This is entirely up to you, but we recommend that you use one email program to avoid confusion and loss of mail. So, if you have previously used another mail program on this computer, click Yes.

Your Mail program is nearly set up.

Because the initial setup doesn't allow you to specify outgoing authentication, you must go to the Mail menu and choose Preferences.

Select the appropriate account and click Edit depending on what you want to do.

Place a check mark next to "Use authentication when sending mail" and click OK..

Once you are connected to the internet you can send and recieve email.
