Many different circumstances can lead to problems with mail account autoconfiguration. If the account does not report having been successfully created at this point, you will need to configure it further. If Mac Mail tells you “Additional account information required” and provides a Next button, click it.

Select an email account type. Select IMAP to leave mail on the server when accessed or POP to remove it from the server. If your email is hosted on our servers, your Mail Server will be “mail.yourdomain.com” where yourdomain.com is whatever comes after the @ symbol in your email address. Re-enter the same User Name andPassword. Click Next.
