Setting up Email on your Apple Device
Hi, this is Dan Haak here from Bloom360 and we are going to have a look at how to set up email on an Apple device. In this case, an Apple laptop.
Alright.So, the first thing we want to do is we have our account details handy and what we’re going to do is then come down to “System Preferences” and we open that up. And what we open up next is “Internet Accounts”. So we click on that.
Alright so… and we scroll down on this list. Get my apple. Ok,so now we click on “Add Mail Account”. Click “Create”. And we are going to put in our name here so get rid of that. And the email address is what we’ve been given so in this case it’s (email@example.com) and we’ll just save that because we are going to use it a few times.
Alright and password is the password that you’ve been given. Ok, and now click create and it’s going to tell us that we have to configure it manually which is normally so we click “Next. And the email that you are going to be setting up is “Pop” so we are going to be clicking on that. And the mail server is the mail server that you’ve been given – in this case, it’s the incoming server. So it’s (mail.bloom360.com.au) and generally that is going to be what you are going to use but do check the settings that’s been sent.
The username is going to be the email address you’ve been sent. So, (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the password is the password and that should already be set. You’ve already put it in once and then we click “Next”. And it’s going to tell us we need more information and that’s correct. That’s normal.
So, the port is the incoming pop3port that you have been given in the settings. In this case it’s “995”. Do check your settings though and we click “Use SSL”, which means turn security on. After that we click “Next” one more time and SMTP server is our outgoing server and in this case it’s (mail.bloom360.com.au) and you do have to put in the username and password so in this case it’s the email address you have been given (email@example.com) and the password is not optional – you do actually have to put in the password so put that in.
And we click “Create” and it tells we need more information which is totally normal and wants to know what port number the outgoing server is on and you’ve been given that in the information you’ve been sent. In this case, it’s “465” and again we use “SSL” so we are turning security on and then we click “Create”.
And that’s it. It’s all set up so if you go into your email account now you’ll see emails in your new email address so hopefully this has been helpful and we’ll talk later. Thanks very much. Bye bye.
