Setting up your UTORmail account

  1. Start Mail. If Mail has not been run before, a new account creation wizard will appear, and you'll see a dialog window similar to the one pictured below:



    NOTE: If you don't see this dialog it just means that Mail has been run before, and you need to begin here.

    Click Continue.


  2. You'll be presented with the following window:





    • For Account Type, select IMAP
    • The Account Description, should be UTORmail

    • Enter your UTORmail email address in the last field.

      Click Continue.


  3. Next, you'll be asked to fill in your incoming mail server information.
