Secure E-mail Account Setup In Apple Mail

If you have email hosting with WebsiteExpress, then you can take advantage of our secure email hosting services for your Apple Mail email program. A secure email account will give you an encrypted connection to and from the server so that your password and data is secured during transmission over the internet. This will prevent anyone who may be monitoring your internet connection from viewing your email account details. This is especially useful on public wifi connections such as what you would find at a coffee shop or a hotel. Please follow the instructions below to set up a secure WebsiteExpress email account for your domain name in Apple Mail.

Here are the settings to quickly set up Apple Mail.

Encryption Type: SSL
