Was this helpful? (0) (0)

This guide is for changing an existing email account's SMTP server from your ISP to StudioCoast only. If you need to setup a new Email account with Apple Mac mail please click here.


 Step 1


 Open up Mac Mail. Select the "Mail" menu from the top and then select "Preferences".


 Step 2


In the Account window that pops up, select the dropdown menu next to "Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):" and then select "Edit SMTP Serer List". We will be replacing your Outgoing Mail Server with the same as your Incoming Mail Server, so take note of that on this Window so you can enter it in on the next Window.


 Step 3


With your old outgoing mail server selected above, under the Account Information tab, replace the Server Name field with the same as your Incoming Mail Server.


 Step 4


Next, select the 'Advanced' tab and fill in the following details as per below. Once completed, select OK.

Port: 26
Authentication: Password
User Name: Your username will be the same as your full email address. Eg. yourname@domainname.com.au.
Password: Your Email Account's Password. If you are unsure, visit the "Email Accounts" section of hostControl and click 'Display Passwords'.

SSL is optional.


 Step 5


 Completed! Press the x in the top right corner to leave the Account window and you can now begin to send emails through our SMTP Server.
