Step-by-step e-mail configuration for Apple Mail Sierra

Step-by-step instructions for macOS Sierra configuring your e-mail account in Apple Mail.

If you have created an e-mail address in the Control Panel, you can configure this account in your Apple Mail.

E-mail account administration

Click Mail and then select Accounts... from the file menu to manage your e-mail accounts. At the lower left, tap the + symbol to start the setup wizard.

Configuration

Select New Mailbox... and proceed through the steps.

First enter a name for this account. This name will be displayed in the account list.
Enter your full e-mail address and the corresponding password in the field below.

Choosing the account type: POP3 or IMAP

Now choose between a POP3 or IMAP account.

Using IMAP saves your e-mails on the server. Each time you read an e-mail, a copy is downloaded from the server.

Using POP3 downloads and saves your e-mails to your smartphone. The messages are then deleted from the server. This way, you can also read your e-mails offline at any time, for example if you are on the train.

If you are not certain choose IMAP.

IMAP

Enter the full e-mail address in Username and the corresponding password in the field below.
Enter imap.mail.hostpoint.ch as Incoming Mail Server.

POP3

Enter the full e-mail address in Username and the corresponding password in the field below.
Enter pop.mail.hostpoint.ch as Incoming Mail Server.

Outgoing mail server

Enter asmtp.mail.hostpoint.ch as Outgoing Mail Server. 

Finish

Click Login to set up your account and then Continue to complete the setup process.

Once your account has been set up, go to Server Settings and uncheck the two boxes next to Automatically manage connection settings. Also make sure the port number is correct:

IMAP with Use SSL -> 993
IMAP without Use SSL -> 143

POP3 with Use SSL -> 995
POP3 without Use SSL -> 110

SMTP with Use SSL -> 465
SMTP without Use SSL -> 587
