  1. Open MacOS X mail as usual.
  2. From the Mail menu at the top of the screen, select Preferences, then select Accounts. If you have more than one account, make sure that your udel.edu account is highlighted in the Accounts window pane.
  3. In the Account Information window pane, make sure that mail.udel.edu is the Incoming Mail Server. If it's not, then select and replace the incorrect information by typing mail.udel.edu in the Incoming Mail Server text box.
  4. If the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) is not listed as mail.udel.edu, you need to change it.

    Click on the name of the listed outgoing mail server to expand the list of servers. If mail.udel.edu is on the list, highlight it to make it the outbound server your account will try first.

    If mail.udel.edu is not listed, select Add Server. Type mail.udel.edu in the SMTP Server Options dialog box.

    If it's not selected, select Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Leave authentication set to none.

    Click OK.

  5. In the main Accounts window, select the Advanced tab. Make sure the IMAP Path Prefix: text box is blank. Also, make sure that Use SSL is selected.

  6. Close the preferences window. If you made any changes, you will see the Save Changes dialog box. Click Save.
