Using OSX Mac Mail with Fused¶
Important: Before proceeding with the instructions in this article, you will need to have created an email account. If you have not done that yet, stop and do that now before proceeding.
If you have never used Mail before, the first time you open it you will be prompted for your email account details. If you've used Mail before, access the
File menu and select
Add Account to configure Mac Mail with a new email account.
Enter your name, full email address (
email@example.com), and password in the space provided. These are the same details you will have configured in cPanel's Mail section when you created a new email account earlier within the provided cPanel control panel.
Now, click Create. Mac Mail will now attempt to use AutoDiscovery to determine what settings your email account should use. cPanel and the mail server we provide supports AutoDiscovery and Mac Mail should be able to automatically configure the remaining details for your account. If this is successful, then you are finished and can begin using the email account.
If for some reason AutoDiscovery fails, then you will need to manually configure your email account settings using the instructions below.
