Mac Mail Setup

1. Open up Mail.app and press Command+Comma 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 (we recommend 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
* Server port: 26
* Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL): NO
* Authentication: password
* User Name: email-name@your-domain-name.com
* Password: your email password
