MacOSX(10.4) Mail (change the Outgoing mail server setting)

  • These settings are based on MacOSX(10.4) Mail ver. 2.1
  • These settings assume you have setup your email account using an email address of an ISP other than Asahi Net.
  • These settings show how to change the settings to use Asahi Net's Outgoing mail server's "SMTP over SSL" (Port: 465), while still receiving your mail from the Incoming mail server of the company providing your email address.
