How to enable SSL for incoming mail server?

Hello,

How do I enable SSL for the incoming mail server in Mail? I found the option for the outgoing, but not the incoming...

Thanks in advance!

At the bottom there should be a button saying Server Settings. It is located there.

That screen only has options for outgoing SSL. I need incoming SSL.

Preferences --> Accounts --> (select the right email account) --> "Advanced" tab, then check the SSL box at the bottom
