    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!

    Preferences > Accounts > Select the right account

    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
