  • Open up Mail.app and press Command+Comma to invoke the Preferences window.
  • Switch to the "Accounts" pane and press the + button in the lower-left corner.
  • Under "Account Information", fill out the following information:
         * Account Type: POP
         * Email Address: username@your-domain-name.com
         * Incoming Mail Server: mail.your-domain-name.com
         * Username: username@your-domain-name.com
         * Password: password
  • 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: username@your-domain-name.com
         * Password: password
         * Dismiss the window by pressing "OK."
  • Back in the "Accounts" pane, switch to the "Advanced" tab and do not check the box marked "Use SSL" towards the bottom.
  • The rest of the process is short and sweet, and merely involves changing your preferences to enable POP access.
