Follow these steps to configure Apple Mail for Mac OS X to work with your secure BurlyMail.net e-mail account.

Ready to begin? Lets go:

1. Launch Apple Mail

Start Mail.app using the Dock or the Finder.

→ If this is the first time you are using Apple Mail, the account setup assistant appears upon launch - skip to step 2.1.

→ If you already use Apple Mail and, continue with step 1.1 below.

1.1. Open Mail application preferences:

open mail prefs...

Choose Preferences... from the Mail application menu.

2. Add new account:

add new account...

With the Account pane active, click the plus symbol found near the bottom of the Accounts list

2.1. Set general account information:

Select IMAP as the account type, and provide your full name and complete e-mail address where indicated.

Once ready, click the Continue button.

2.2. Set incoming mail server:

incoming mail...

Set incoming to mail.burlyhouse.net, and use your complete e-mail address as username with your login password.

Click the Continue button.

Don't worry - this is normal and expected behavior, as Burly Mail allows only secure connections and we haven't yet configured security options for this account.

When ready, click Continue.
