Configuring Email in Apple Mail

This guide provides an in-depth overview of how to setup your new Pagevamp email address in Apple Mail. If you don't have an email address yet, check out our guide here about how to create one.  

Quick Overview (for advanced users - don't worry if you don't know what these mean yet!)

  • IMAP
  • Outgoing mail server: mail.b.hostedemail.com
  • Incoming mail server: mail.b.hostedemail.com
  • Username: The email address you just purchased from Pagevamp
  • Password: The temporary password emailed to you (unless you've already changed it)

 

Add Email Account

There are two paths to setting up email accounts in the Mac OS:
