A Step By Step Guide To Setting Up An E-Mail Account On An Apple Mac

One of the most common questions we get asked relate to the setting up of e-mail accounts. Previously we have set up a number of guides designed to help you along your way but recently we have received a number of questions asking about setting up an e-mail account on an Apple Mac.

To help guide you through the process of adding an e-mail account to your Mac, we have drawn up a 6 step guide which tells you all that you need to know to set up your account.

Step 1 – Firstly, open ‘Mac Mail’, click on the ‘Mail’ tab from the menu and then click on ‘Preferences’.

Step-1

Step 2 – After completing step 1, click on the ‘Accounts’ tab which is located at the top of the menu and then click on the ‘+’ button which can be found at the lower left part of the page.

This will open the wizard which will guide you through the e-mail set-up process.

Step-2

Step 3 – When you arrive at the next screen, a window will open and you will need to enter the name that your recipients will see when they receive emails from you. After adding this to the ‘Full Name’ field, then enter your email address in the ‘Email Address’ field along with your designated password for the e-mail account in the ‘Password’ field .

Step-3

Step 4 – The next step will involve filling in the ‘Incoming Mail Server’ details and once completed clicking on the ‘Continue’ button:

On Account Type select IMAP. Type a description such as Siteground IMAP Server.

In the Incoming Mail Server field type mail.yourdomainname.com (i.e mail.johnsmith.com) or just yourdomainname.com. Type your full email address in the ‘User Name’ field and your password in the relevant field below.

Step-4

Step 5 – In the next window you will be prompted to enter your Outgoing Mail Server. Fill in the following details and click the Continue button:

In the description field you can enter ‘My SMTP’.

In the outgoing field type mail.yourdomainname.com (i.e mail.johnsmith.com) or just yourdomainname.com.. Tick both checkboxes for Use only this server and Use Authentication.

Once again enter your full email in the ‘User Name’ field and add the password into the box below.

Step-5

Step 6 – Once you have entered all details and clicked the ‘Continue’ button you will see an account  summary which highlights all of the details that have been entered previously. You can check here that all of the information is correct and if you find any errors, you will have the option to ‘Go Back’ and correct them.

Step-6

Once you click the ‘Create’ button you will be able to send and receive emails from your Mac Mail client with your newly established email account.

How Can I Set-Up An E-Mail Account On My Computer?

There are few questions which we are asked more often than ‘how can I set-up an e-mail account on my computer?’ A cause of great confusion and aggravation in equal measure for many people, it’s really not as complicated or daunting as it may seem.

To help you along the way, we have drawn up a step by step guide which will help you to set up your account and hopefully stop you throwing your computer out of the window in the meantime!

For the purposes of this guide we are going to use Microsoft Outlook as the e-mail client but in future posts we will cover as many different clients as possible.

First of all – Step 1

Before starting the set-up process, you will need to ensure that you have obtained some vital information from your ISP (Internet Service Provider). The highlighted words below are the details which must be identified and an example of what you will need can be found below:

  • Username:    johnsmith@ntlworld.com
  • Password:   hijerkjdf
  • Incoming Mail Server:    mail.ntlworld.com
  • Outgoing Mail Server:    mail.ntlworld.com
Once you have obtained these details, open up Microsoft Outlook, click on Tools and then E-Mail Accounts and you will be well on your way.

Step 1

Once you have done this you can move onto Step 2

Simply click on the option to ‘Add a new e-mail account’ and then click next.

Step 2

Step 3

The standard e-mail server for the vast majority of people will be ‘POP3’, (we will discuss the other options in a later blog), therefore all you need to do for step 3 is to click on ‘POP3’ and then click next.

 

Step 3

 

Step 4 – The next step involves filling in the details which you have obtained from your ISP.

 

Step 4

 

You are almost there! Once you have filled in all of the relevant details, the next step – Step 5 – is to click on the ‘Test Account Settings’ button, this will check that all of the details are correct by sending a test e-mail through to your e-mail address.

Step 6 is the final one. After click on the ‘Test Account Settings’ button, simply click of ‘next’, if all is well, you will see the message below. Your e-mail account is all up and running.

Step 6
