Setting up Mac Mail (OS-X 10.5)

These are instructions for setting up your Mac Mail client for use with this server. Where the pictures in the following diagrams show Taiga, mail.taiga.ca, and smtp.taiga.ca, you should use GNO, mail.gno.org, and smtp.gno.org instead.


Setting Up Incoming Mail

In order to set up your incoming (IMAP) server configuration, perform the following steps:

  1. If this is the first time you've run Mac Mail, you will be taken through the setup wizard. It starts out with your real name, your email address, and your email password. Finally click continue:

  2. On the next screen, select IMAP as the account type. Add a description, and enter the server hostname, your login name, and email password (the password may already be filled out from the previous screen). Click continue:

  3. Since the server uses a self-signed SSL certificate, you will have to explicitly accept it. Click on Show Certificate:

  1. Enter the server description and hostname. Don't click on Use Authentication just yet. Click Continue:
