Chapter 8: Using Email > Setting Up Email Accounts

Setting Up Email Accounts

Setting up new email accounts works the same way whether you’re using Mail for the first time or adding an umpteenth different email address for yourself. You’ll go through a series of dialog boxes that ask you for your username, password, server names, and other information.

Image In Mail, choose File, Add Account. (If you’re starting Mail for the first time, you’re taken directly to this series of dialog boxes.)

Image Fill in your name, email address, and password; then click Continue.

Image Type your incoming mail server’s address, your username, and your password; then click Continue.

Image Check Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) (if your provider supports it) and then click Continue.


Image Note: More Fun with Mail Accounts

You can set up as many Mail accounts as you have email addresses. Mail automatically filters your incoming email into a separate mailbox for each address, so you can keep your messages organized.
