To make Apple Mail work, it’s necessary to configure an outgoing mail server, that is to enter in the default Mac client the right parameters of the SMTP server you are using. This way Apple Mail will be able to correcty deliver your messages.
Just remember that only a professional outgoing mail server will guarantee the highest delivery rate for your emails: in fact, normal SMTP servers like Gmail’s or Yahoo’s aren’t very reliable when it comes to mass mailing or email marketing.
Anyhow, the set up process of an SMTP server on Apple Mail is very easy:
1. Click on “Preferences” in the “Mail” menu.
2.Open the “Accounts” tab and click on “Server settings”.
3. Now enter in the “Outgoing mail server” voice your outgoing mail server name (for instance, pro.turbo-smtp.com). If you don’t know it, have a look at our list of SMTP parameters.
4. “Port”: default is 25, but there are also other options: check our article about SMTP ports.
5. Finally, choose if you want to authenticate your mailing or not.
That’s it, you’re ready to send emails with Apple Mail!
