  5. Select "Internet Email" then hit "Next"


  6. Enter in your email address information.
    • User Information
      • Your Name: The name you want to appear emails to be coming from; typically your name.
      • E-Mail Address: Your full email address
    • Server Information
      • Account Type: You can choose POP3 or IMAP; we strongly recommend using IMAP
      • Incoming mail server: mail.YourDomain.com
      • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): mail.YourDomain.com
    • Logon Information
      • User Name: Your full email address

  8. In this new window, go to the "Outgoing server" tab, and select the "My Outgoing server (SMTP) requires Authentication" check-box. Next select "Use same settings as my incoming server" and then click into the "Advanced Tab"


  9. In here, select SSL authentication for your outgoing server, and to use port 465 (the default port). We recommend using SSL authentication for incoming mail as well; Port 993 for IMAP and port 995 for POP accounts.


  10. From here, click on Finish, and test out your mailbox.

NOTE: An SSL certificate warning pop-up is expected and can be safely ignored.

You may also see the following prompt when sending a message, this means you need to define where sent messages will be saved; Selecting "Use Default Folder" is fine unless you'd like to store them somewhere else.
