					                 Mail setup for Mac OS10
                 In this step-by-step guide you will learn how to set up an email account in Mail,
                 the email program which is part of Mac OS10.

Note that in this section, we are assuming you are setting up your main email account for the
first time. But any sub-accounts you create later - for example for other members of your family -
can be set up using exactly the same procedure.

To set up your e-mail account in Mail, you will first need to open the program. Click on the Mail
stamp icon on the Dock toolbar.




Once Mail has launched, you will be presented with the main window for Mail.




From the menu options at the top of the screen, click once on 'Mail' then 'Preferences' from the
dropdown menu.

You will now be presented with the Accounts window. In here you can see which mail accounts
have been created. If you have not had any previous accounts with other ISPs, the pane on the
left labelled 'Accounts' should be empty.




To begin creating your first mail account, click on the '+' symbol in the bottom left corner of the
window.




You will now see ‘New Account’ in the right hand 'Accounts' Pane.

                                                     Page 2
The first thing you will need to do is click on the drop down menu in the 'Account Type' field in
the right hand pane, and select 'POP' as shown here.




You will then need to complete the rest of the fields underneath the 'Account Type' drop down
menu.

In the 'Description' Field enter a name for the mailbox itself. This field is simply to help you
distinguish between different e-mail accounts if you have more than one on your computer.

In the 'Email Address' field, you should enter the email address that you chose when you
registered for the service. This will be in the form of username@btinternet.com.

In the 'Full Name' field enter the name or nickname that you would like your recipients to see in
their mailboxes when they receive mail from you. Again, you can enter anything you like in this
field.

In the 'Incoming Mail Server' field you will need to enter mail.btinternet.com

In the 'User Name' field you will need to enter the first part of your BT Yahoo! email address
before the '@' symbol. For example, if your e-mail address is username@btinternet.com, you
would just enter username.

In the 'Password' field you will need to enter the password you set up for your primary account
when you registered for the service.




Now you will need to configure the Outgoing mail server.

First click on the drop down menu in the 'Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)' field and select 'Add
Server'.




You will be presented with the 'Outgoing Mail Server' screen. Enter ‘mail.btinternet.com’




Ignore the Server Port, and 'Use Secure Sockets Layer' box. Instead, click on the
'Authentication' drop-down menu and select 'Password from the list.

In the 'User Name' and 'Password' fields, enter the same username and password that you used
on the previous screen: in other words, the e-mail address without '@btinternet.com' for the
'User Name', along with the password associated with the account.




Press OK and you will be returned to the accounts window with all the necessary information
entered.

Close the window to finish the account setup. You will be asked if you wish to save your changes.
Select Yes.




You have now successfully created a mail account in Mail on Macintosh OS X.




Setting up email on Macintosh OS 9.x with Outlook Express
There are two stages to this: creating a new account and then setting it up to work correctly.

In order to set up your email account you will first need to open Outlook Express. Usually you will
have a shortcut on your desktop. If you do, double click on the icon to open it.

Once Outlook Express has launched, you will be presented with a screen similar to the one
shown below. This is the Outlook Express main window.

                                                     Page 5
From the menu options at the top of the screen, click once on 'Tools', then click 'Accounts' from
the menu.




You will now be presented with the Accounts window. In here you can see which mail, news and
directory accounts have been created.




By default you should be on the ‘Mail’ tab, and if you have not had any previous accounts with
other ISPs the window should be empty.

Click on the 'New' button at the top left of the window. This will begin the Mail Account setup
wizard.

The first window you will be presented with will ask you for a display name.

                                                     Page 6
The display name is what the recipients of your email will see in their 'From' field, and can be
specified by you. Enter an appropriate name or nickname and then click on the arrow to the right
of the number 1 in the bottom right corner of the window.

The next window asks you to enter your email address.




Ensure that the first option 'I already have an email address that I would like to use' is selected
and enter your BT Yahoo! Broadband email address. Example, Joe.bloggs@btinternet.com

Once you have done so, click the arrow to the right of the number 2 in the bottom right corner
of the window.

The next stage of the wizard will ask you for information about the mail servers you wish to use.

The first thing you should check is that you set your incoming mail server type to 'POP3' from
the drop-down menu.

                                                     Page 7
You will also have fields for an incoming mail server and an outgoing mail server. In both of these
fields you should enter mail.btinternet.com as this is the address for both the POP3 and SMTP
servers.

Once all the information has been entered correctly, click the arrow to the right of the number 3
in the bottom right corner of the window.

In the next window, you are asked for your account information. The Account ID field should
already be completed, however, if it is not, enter in the first part of your email address, before
the @ symbol, e.g. joe.bloggs, as shown here.




You will also need to enter the password for this email address in the password field. It would be
a good idea to leave the option to 'Save Password' ticked. This it will save you from having to
type in your password every time you wish to send and receive email.

Once you have completed this, click on the arrow to the right of the number four.

The final window of the wizard asks you to give the account a name. This is for display purposes
only and what you enter will not affect your email. Enter a suitable name into the 'Account
name' field, then click the 'Finish' button.




You will now be returned to the accounts menu and you should be able to see the account you
have just created in the list.

Before you can use it, there are still some settings in the account that need to be changed.

Click on the account once to highlight it, and then click on the 'Edit' button above it.

In this window you can view and change the settings for the email account you created. Here,
you need to setup your email account for SMTP authentication.

Click on 'Click here for advanced sending options' under the 'Sending Mail' header towards the
bottom of the window.




In this window, click the box 'SMTP server requires authentication', the third option down. This
should then highlight the two sub-options beneath it. Ensure that 'Use same settings as
incoming mail server' is the selected option and then close the window by clicking on the little
box at the top left.




You will now be returned to the accounts window. Close this window by clicking the 'OK' button
and you will be returned to the Outlook Express Main Window.

and receive email successfully.
