The first thing that you need to do is to open the Mac Mail on your computer. A “Welcome to Mac Mail” screen will appear. It is basically a wizard that will guide you through the process of setting up your email. You will be requested to fill out the three empty fields being displayed in the window with your name, email address and password. Remember to provide your email password in the appropriate field instead of the cPanel password. Once you have filled out the empty fields with the required information, proceed forward by clicking the “Continue” button in the lower-right corner of the welcome screen.
The next screen will be named “Incoming Mail Server” and will require you to specify how you want to get the email from the server. You will need to specify the “Account Type,” choosing between POP and IMAP. Once you have selected the account type, write a short description of the account in the “Description” field, e.g. “Zane’s Email.” Fill out the “Incoming Mail Server” with the domain where you want Mac Mail to get the emails from. It should look something like “mail.yourdomainname.com.” In the “User Name” field, enter your complete email address and enter your password in the “Password” field. Once you have provided the required information, click the “Continue” button.
The next screen “Outgoing Mail Server” will pretty much ask you to provide the same information that you provided in the previous screen, i.e. “Incoming Mail Server.” Fill out the empty fields with the required information such as “User Name” and “Password.” Check the “Use Authentication” and “Use only this server” boxes before clicking “Continue.”
The final screen “Account Summary” will display all the information you have provided and settings that you have chosen so far to confirm them. Click the “Take account online” box after confirming the information and then click “Create” to start accessing your email through Mac Mail.
