    are you using POP3 account

    are you using the default mail application on the mac

    you will need to know details etc

    suggest they may be on the email site you regestered with about setting up accounts on oter mail applications.

    In the default mail programme on mac called "Mail'

    You are given Account type (CHANGE TO POP3)

    Description (TYPE IN FULL EMAIL ADDRESS)

    Email Address: (TYPE IN EMAIL ADDRESS AGAIN)

    Full name (FULL NAME OF USER OF THE EMAIL ADDRESS)

    Incoming Server: pop.towson.edu (mey be this but need to check with email provider)

    user name: your logon username for mail

    Password: your password for email

    outgoing mail server: smtp.towson.edu (may be this again need to check with email provider on their site for info)

    First of all, do some research.

    Here is a link to towson.edu that shows how to setup some popular email programs. They even give a general one at the bottom. Follow it and it should work, then if you have a questions, post them here.


    sorry, i forgot to post the link, here it is:
