  1. In the incoming mail box add mail.yourdomain.com (replacing yourdomain.com with your actual domain) and change the port number to 993
  2. In the outgoing mail box add mail.yourdomain.com (replacing yourdomain.com with your actual domain) and change the port number to 465

We recommend you test the account by sending an email to it and also sending and email from the new account, its best to test sending to a gmail or similar account.
