Set up SSL mailboxes: Apple Mac Mail

In this guide, you'll learn how to send your emails with SSL in the Apple Mac Mail and then retrieve it.

SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is used for the secure transmission of data via e-mail.

The instructions for setting up a mailbox without SSL can be found under the following link:

Apple Mac Mail

Step 1

First start the "Mail" program from the dock at the bottom of the screen.

Step 2

The following screen appears:

 

Fill in the fields as shown.
Full Name: Your name to be displayed when sending.
Your e-mail address: max@mustermann.de
Password: Your password, which you have assigned yourself for the respective mailbox.

Then click on "Continue".

Step 3

Now you will see the following screen:

 

Enter here the details for the server for incoming e-mails (SSL), for example "host42.checkdomain.de". 

If you want to use the protocol "POP3", select "POP" as server type.

If you want to use "IMAP", select "IMAP" accordingly.

Fill in the fields as shown.

Then click on "Continue".

Replace all fields with the information about your e-mail box.

You can also find this in your customer login under "E-mails -> Server information".

As the user name, take the e-mail login that was used when you created the e-mail mailbox in your

customer area on www.checkdomain.net/en has been assigned.

The program then checks whether the settings are correct and logs on to the registered server as a test.

If you get an error message, check the entered values again.

Step 4

The following screen appears:

Check the box "Use SSL" and then click on "Continue".

Step 5

You will see the following screen:

Here you enter the server for outgoing mails. 

In the "Description" field you can enter any name for the outgoing server.

Fill in the other fields as shown.

Replace all fields with the information for your e-mail box.

You can also find this in your customer login under "E-mails -> Server information".

As user name, take the e-mail login of the e-mail account you created when you created the e-mail account in your

customer area on www.checkdomain.net/en has been assigned.

If you are using SSL, enter "host42.checkdomain.de" as "server for outgoing e-mails".

The data to be entered can be found in your customer login under E-mail administration -> E-mail server information.

Click on "Continue" if you have entered all data correctly.

The program will then check again whether the settings are correct and will display the following message 

to the registered server as a test.

If you receive an error message, check the entered data again.

Step 6

The following screen appears:

Check the box "Use SSL" and then click on "Continue".

Step 7

You will see the following screen:

Check the box for "Connect account to the Internet".

Click on the "Create" button.

Step 8

Now select "Mail -> Settings" from the MacMail menu bar.

The following screen will appear, in which you select the "Accounts" tab and click on "Create". 

Click on your "SMTP server":

Then click on "Edit SMTP server list".

Step 9

A window opens with the SMTP server settings.

In this window, under "Advanced", set the point before "Use own port" and enter the port "587".

Finally, confirm your entries by clicking on the "OK" button.

Your new e-mail address can immediately be used to send and receive e-mails.
