    don't worry about it what ever you do mail will screw itself up. Its a flippant joke. Everyday it changes settings. Doesn't work for hours. Forget about it is my advice.

    I realise there might be some problems, but could someone advise on the procedure?

    Within Mail > Preferences > Accounts - add the email accounts. Or. you can add them in System Preferences > Internet Accounts, and then activate them in Mail.

    When adding, you'll be asked for Account type (iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.), addy, PW, and account name (your choice). It is rather straight forward.
