Add my Professional Email to Mail (Mac)


Step 5 of the Set up my Professional Email series.

Add your Professional Email account to the Mail app. Then you can send and receive business emails from your Mac.

  1. Open Mail.
    • If you're new to Mail: You'll see Choose a Mail account provider...
    • If you already use Mail: Select Mail and Add Account. You'll see Choose a Mail account provider...
      Mail and Add Account
  2. Select Other Mail Account and Continue.
    Other Mail Account and Continue
  3. Enter your Name, Email Address and Password. You'll need to enter your Professional Email address and password (your GoDaddy username and password won't work here).
  4. Select Sign In.
  5. Select IMAP as the Account Type, and then enter the Mail server settings:
    • Incoming Mail Server: imap.secureserver.net
    • Outgoing Mail Server: smtpout.secureserver.net
    Enter mail server settings
  6. Note: Above the Mail server settings, you'll see a Username field. It's filled automatically, so you don't need to enter any information

  7. Select Sign In.

    Note: If the email servers weren't automatically found, you might see an error message that says "Unable to verify account name or password." Don't worry - this is normal. You can still continue by selecting Sign In.

  8. Select Done. Mail will verify your Professional Email account settings and load your email.
    Done
