Set Up Email on Mac

Use the Mail app to send, receive and manage email for all of your email accounts in one location. Simply add the accounts — such as iCloud, Exchange, Google, school, work or other — you want to use in Mail.

  1. The first time you open the Mail app on your Mac, it may prompt you to add an account. Select an account type — if you don’t see your type, select Other Mail Account — then enter your account information.
  2. If you already added an email account, you can still add more. In Mail, choose Mail > Add Account, select an account type, then enter your account information. Make sure the Mail tick box is selected for the account.
  3. If you’re using an account on your Mac with other apps, such as Contacts or Messages, you can also use that account with Mail. In Mail, choose Mail > Accounts to open Internet Accounts preferences, select the account on the left, then select the Mail tick box on the right.
