macOS Sierra Mail

While it's still not nearly as easy as the auto-configuration of Thunderbird and other email clients, the process to set up email in macOS Sierra has been greatly streamlined in this version.

Step 1

Open Apple Mail and if you're not prompted to add an email client pull down Mail->Accounts from the top menu and press the + button for an Email Account.

Select "Other email Account"

Step 2

Type your name as you'd like it to appear in your From email, your email address hosted at iThinc,

Step 3

Enter Email Settings Specifics. At this point Mail will popup with a message reading that some information is needed to connect. Your email settings will be:

  • Email address: Should be auto-populated from the previous prompt.
  • User Name: Copy and paste your email address to this field.
  • Password: If this is blank, type your password here 
  • Account Type: IMAP
  • Incoming Mail Server:
  • Outgoing Mail Server:

Press the Sign In button at the bottom right and everything should be configured properly.
