This tutorial will show you how to setup your email account in Apple Mail 9.x on OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
* Screenshots are for reference only, please read the instructions at each step and do not use the information in the screenshots.
First, you will need to determine what your mail server address is. Please open a web browser on your computer and type in webmail.yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name) and press enter. For example, if your email address is email@example.com, you would type in webmail.xyzhealth.com. Please do not include http:// or https:// in front of it.
You will automatically be redirected to your mail server. Your mail server address is the first portion of the URL, right before /Login.aspx. In this example, the mail server address that we were redirected to is mail5.emailpros.com. Please write down your mail server address, you will need it for the next steps.
