How do I set up my email account on my iMac OS Yosemite 10.10.2 so that the emails are downloaded to my computer and removed from the ISP server?

how do I set up my email account on my iMac OS Yosemite 10.10.2 so that the emails are downloaded to my computer and removed from the ISP server?

When setting up the email using Apple 'Mail' (version 8.2 (2070.6)) I do not get an option to set up my email as using POP.  I can go to Outlook from Microsoft and I get a chance to set my mail up using POP, however I would prefer to use the Apple supplied 'Mail' email programme as I'm using Office 365 and may not want to continue the subscription sometime in the future.
Any advice on setting Mail to POP would be appreciated.  A not so Happy Wombat.

  • How can I set up 2 email accounts in Mail

    It's me again.
    I'm trying to set up Mail 2.1.3. in 10.4.11. I have 2 email accounts. I can enter one just fine but it won't take another. When I try, it says that I "already have a POP account". How do I set up 2 email accounts? I see where I can enter the 2 email addresses by separating them by a comma. But the 2 addresses have different passwords and the password box takes only one password at a time. Any ideas?

    It's hard for me to tell by what has been written so far, but it may be referring to what you are entering for the account description. That is, in Mail Prefs > Accounts > Acct Info, for each account it has several entries: Acct Type (that you can't change), Description, email address, full name. If the first account's description is POP, then make the second account's description POP2. I use terms like, "home", "work", and "school" for my accounts' descriptions.
    If this is not what is going on, please write down every step you do, and every entry you make, as you try to configure your second email account and post it back here. Naturally, do NOT disclose your actual email address(es) or mail account login name or its password to us here.

  • How do I set up imap email account on iPad air 2

    How do I set up imap email account on iPad air 2

    You do not need to specify the type of account.  If its IMAP, when you add the account it will detect that automatically.
    Alternatively, you can enter a fake email address and password when adding the account, and wait for the process to fail, you should then get an option at the top to select between IMAP and POP3
    You can then change the details of the account to the correct ones.

  • How can I set up an email user as "send-only" (no mailbox for receiving)?

    Can anyone tell me how I can set up an email account that can send emails but not receive emails.
    Our Web application has been using a generic email address "[email protected]" in all of our PHP Web applications as the sending email account. I have this user set up in WORKGROUP ADMIN as a proper account. However the account gets tons of SPAM emails and is constantly filling up.
    Also, all of the email accounts require SMTP authentication to send emails.
    Is there any way to identify an account as a send only account so we can generate emails from our Web applications that cannot be replied to?
    Thanks for the help
    -- Jon

    Doing so will cause issues. If you send out mail which to an outside server appears to be non existent, mail may be rejected and you may even be blacklisted.
    You can remove the account from WGM and add a role account as an alias send to /dev/null. This will look to the outside world like an existing address, but simply be discarded on your system. You should however include a working address in your mailings for people to be able to respond.
    Assuming you use local domains, edit /etc/postfix/aliases and add:
    noreply: /dev/null
    (you can change noreply with the sender used in your PHP apps, but I'd probably change the PHP apps to use noreply as this signals to people receiving your mails that this address is unattended).
    When done, issue:
    sudo postalias /etc/postfix/aliases
    sudo newaliases
    sudo postfix reload

  • HT204053 how do I set up a sub account in iCloud?

    How do I set up a sub account in icloud?  We need three separate email addresses in this house but only have one Apple ID.  Since the apple ID is an email address, I'm sort of in a catch 22.  I can't set up individual icloud accounts because I don't have other apple ID's.  I can't get other apple ID's because you have to use one to get an icloud account... Very confusing.  Our main email address transfered seamlessly to icloud and we love it but we want to ditch our Advertisement ridden verizon email and have a separate email for my husbands business contacts and my business contacts.  Everyone says we can just sign up for other icloud accounts but... well... the whole catch 22 thing.  Someone please help, I feel like I'm chasing my tail here.

    Welcome to the Apple community.
    You cannot set up subaccounts, as you couldwith the family pack for MobileMe. I'm not sure why you can't create separate Apple IDs and hence iCloud accounts, it isn't good practice to share and iCloud account between different people. All you need to do, is each create your own iCloud account, choosing your old email address when you do so.

    That is a function of your email account, if it is an Imap account it will sync, if it's a POP account, it won't.

    There is no such account. The iPod is really a one-user device
    Create a NEW account/ID for her using these instructions. Make sure you follow the instructions. Many do not and if you do not you will not get the None option. You must use an email address that you have not used with Apple before.

  • How do I set up an email address from a proxy server?

    How do I set up an email account on mu phone that has a proxy server?

    These steps typically resolve the issue:
    1. Press the ePrint button on the printer's front-panel screen (top row of icons, far left button), then press "Print Report".
    2. Head over to the ePrintCenter website (http://www.eprintcenter.com/), and log in (or sign up for a new account if you don't have one).
    3. Click the "+Add Printer" button and enter the printer code from the ePrint info page (“Print Report” page from step 1). Create a customized ePrint email address.
    I just viewed the website on my computer, and it appears to be working okay on my end. It's possible that there's a setting in your web browser responsible for what you're seeing. I would recommend trying the following steps:
    1. Try to view the site in a different web browser to see if that's the issue. Normally, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari all display the website properly. Try one or two of those (other than the one you've been using) and it should do the trick.
    2. If that doesn't work, try resetting Internet Explorer's default settings by clicking "Tools" (on the top menu bar), "Internet Options" (usually at the bottom of that list), "Advanced" (far-right tab), and "Reset" (towards the bottom-right of that box). After resetting the defaults, try viewing the ePrint Settings area again.
