The default search uses "autodiscover. However, don't worry! It's normal for this to happen due to Media Temple's servers not having autodiscover settings enabled by default. When an autodiscover setting has been unsuccessful, the message "Unable to verify account name or password" will appear in a new settings box. Fill in the fields using your email info and access domain.

User Name: Your full email address.
Password: The password to your email account. Outgoing Mail Server: Your email access domain. Please note that by default, Apple Mail versions 10 and higher use secure SSL connections for both incoming and outgoing servers. We highly recommend that you do not change this, but SSL and port settings may be modified under server settings in the preferences menu once setup is complete.

Hey man, appreciate your insight but as someone else stated earlier the mail doesnt recognise my password and keeps asking me over and over again to enter the right one… i certainly know my password so there is something else thats wrong. Thank you in advance. Thank you so much. It got stuck a bit setting up the outgoing server, but I tried a few times and manually typed in the password again and it seems to get through eventually.

Thanks for the instructions. It seems to work. I have two questions and would be grateful if you could respond. However, if I go offline the messages are still available to me to read through. What does it do? The messages are stored both on the server and on your hard drive. Otherwise, you may end up with two Sent etc. I had initially set up a Gmail account in MacMail and then added the Yahoo account yesterday.
So in the left column of the Mail screen at the top under Mailboxes, I have Inbox followed by two sub folders Gmail and Yahoo the incoming emails are thus sorted by account. All are empty as far as I can tell; there is a number on the right side of the folder Gmail but the folder is empty. These folders were automatically created.
