Mac Mail Email Software Setup
Updated Monday January 18th 2021 / Category Email

Looking to update your current settings for an existing account? Find our guide for that here.

Prior to setting up email on your device(s) you will need to have purchased cPanel shared hosting and set up any required mailbox(es) for your domain OR purchased and configured dedicated email hosting mailbox(es) for your domain.

Once you’ve created a mailbox using one of these methods you will be able to retrieve server settings from cPanel – if you’re using Dedicated Email Hosting this will be in the welcome email we send out once your mailbox is configured.

Setting up your account for the first time

1. Open Mac Mail. Click Mail, then click Accounts.


2. Scroll down and select Add Other Account.


3. Click Mail account. You may need to scroll down again to see this option.


4. Enter your name (as you wish for it to show when you send out emails), your full email address and the password.


5. Enter in the incoming and outgoing server details as follows.

  • Email Address: Your full email address needs to go here.
