However, don't worry! It's normal for this to happen due to Media Temple's servers not having autodiscover settings enabled by default. When an autodiscover setting has been unsuccessful, the message "Unable to verify account name or password" will appear in a new settings box. Fill in the fields using your email info and access domain. If you do not see this box and are using a version of Apple Mail that was released prior to OSX Sierra, skip to "Additional steps for older versions of apple mail".
User Name: The password to your email account. Account Type: We strongly recommend connecting via IMAP. To learn more, please see Using Email: How IMAP works. Incoming Mail Server: Outgoing Mail Server: Either your IP address or mail. Please note that by default, Apple Mail versions 10 and higher use secure SSL connections for both incoming and outgoing servers.
We highly recommend that you do not change this, but SSL and port settings may be modified under server settings in the preferences menu once setup is complete. You'll then be asked to confirm which apps that you'd like to attach the email account to.
Select email and any others that you'd like and click Done. To maintain functionality and security, Media Temple recommends that you update to the latest Apple Mail version available.
If this is true for you, use the following settings:. Incoming Mail server: Path Prefix: If you want to use POP3, you need to configure it yourself.
More setting dialog: AOL recommends setting Outlook to Leave messages on the server. Outgoing Server address: Use port to or for SSL. On the Outgoing server tab configure the outgoing server to use Authentication, choosing the Use same settings as my incoming mail server option. OK the dialogs and setup is complete. If you are new to IMAP, the messages are stored on your server and a copy is downloaded to your local machine. When you delete the messages locally, a line is drawn through the message in Outlook's message list indicating the message is marked for deletion.
To delete the message from the server and remove it from Outlook , you need to Purge the messages from the server Edit, Purge deleted messages menu.
How do I configure email on my Mac using Apple Mail? - Media Temple
Diane, your help has been invaluable over the years, but I'm still struggling to understand how my Yahoo IMAP acccount works with Outlook and what I can and cannot do as far as "subscribing" to folders and how that works. Can you explain why that is or point me to one of your wonderful tutorials that explains it?
Thanks so much! My yahoo works fine without a root folder Select folders on the first tab then click the subscribe button to subscribe to folders. No gear icon to be found anywhere for me to get into settings, preferences, headers, etc. How do I fix this? I have been searching for a solution for 7 hours now and finally found you. Thank you in advance. Are you using Yahoo in Outlook or just yahoo in a web browser? In the browser, there is a gear icon to the right of your name near the top of the page. I don't know if there are any settings that will control this though.
The buttons are greyed out? I have an activate button on the top of the screen but dont want to buy.
Can you help? You need a license for Office. If the trial expired Outlook drops to read-only mode - you can't create new items which includes forwards or replies. There is no way to continue to use office legally without buying it. Would someone please tell me how to get rid of the Google interest based e-mails that show up at the top of my list of e-mail every time I open it up?
They are certainly not of interest to me, they are just a pain in the butt! Go to https: My user name and password are correct, so it must be my security settings. Please tell me how to fix this. Thank you so much. If so, you need to use an app password in outlook. Create app passwords at https: I'm trying to set up my Yahoo email with Mac Mail. I actually want it to be a POP account, but it won't give me the option.
I've even tried the preferences in Yahoo mail, but I can't find a way to do it from there either. You can't change the account once it was added but you can remove and read the account.

Try putting in a fake password so you get the account setup dialog - where it will ask for the server name - you can change to pop3 there.

All my IMAP messages previously read and unread are there. I checked the box to integrate Apple Mail and all the mailboxes show with exception to Smart Boxes.
I have yet to figure out how to transfer and setup those in T-Bird. But, after three weeks of not being able to check mail and ripping out hair, screaming explitives, I now have peace. I agree with you James. I have also given up on Apple Mail after good five years of using it with fun and excitement. I am going back to boring Microsoft Outlook! And as you said, if Steve Jobs was still alive! A good case study showing how vital is the role of a great leader. I cannot create a new POP mailbox anymore! I had been having problems with Mail in OS X It kept asking for my password and then telling me it was incorrect.
Worked fine for the last 8 years but now… I tried everything I could think of including erasing the keychain password entries related to Yahoo mail. I logged off Yahoo Mail in my web browser and logged back in using the same password and it worked fine in the browser, just not via the Mac Mail program. Finally I thought, fine, I will delete this mailbox in OS X and build a new one and see what happens. I put in my Yahoo. It seems to be in the Mail program. Any solutions?
They are unreadable and they us to come in as an Excel spread sheet. What can I change or do the receive a readable Excel spread sheet? Also when I click on a new email, I have to double click it for it to open. I did not have to do this before. All I did was click on the new email and it opened. I did notice the double-clicking for a new email, but what troubles me more is that the email I click in the list is not the email text on the right.
