Apple Mail Configuration Steps
[NOTE: These instructions are for Mac OX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard). Menus may vary on other
versions of the Apple Mail software.]
1. Launch Mail from the Applications folder, or from the icon in your dock.
2. If you have no previous accounts setup in Apple Mail, you will see a "Welcome to Mail"
assistant. Otherwise go to the Mail menu, and select Preferences, then Add Account (+
at the bottom left corner of the window.
3. Fill in the Full Name, Email address ([email protected]), and Password fields.
Click Continue to proceed.
4. The Incoming Mail Server window will be displayed. Confirm that the Account Type is
set to IMAP. Add a Description such as “Lamar Email”. Set Incoming Server to
lamar.colostate.edu. Enter your eID and eID password for User Name and Password.
Click Continue.
5. The Outgoing Mail Server window will be displayed. Set a Description such as
“Colorado State smtp”. Set the Outgoing Mail Server to smtp.colostate.edu. Check the
Use Authentication box and set the User Name and Password fields to your eID and
eID password. Click Continue.
6. The Outgoing Mail Security window will be displayed. Be sure the Use Secure Sockets
Layer (SSL) box is checked and Authentication is set to Password.
7. The Account Summary window will be displayed. Verify the information was entered
correctly, and the Take account online box is checked. Then select Create to establish
the account.
8. Verify you can read your Lamar mail and that you can send mail. An easy way to test to
see if your account is setup properly is to try sending an email message to yourself.
