How do I add my SecureMail account to Apple iOS MacMail?

Est. reading time: 2 minutes

DataMotion SecureMail can be integrated into Mozilla Thunderbird in two steps.

  1. Create a new MacMail E-Mail Account
  2. Add the SecureMail POP3 and SMTP settings to this new account

This step-by-step guide provides instructions for doing so.


Create a New MacMail E-Mail Account

MacMail gives you the ability to add multiple email accounts to be used in a single MacMail application. You may already have an account added to MacMail (ie: your company email address), but these steps will take you through adding a new account that is solely configured to send and receive DataMotion SecureMail messages.

 

  1. To add an account to MacMail, first open the Mail app

  2. On the top navigation bar, select Mail then choose Preferences… from the drop-down menu (or push CMD + ,)

    This will bring up the Internet Account pop-up where you can add or remove email accounts.


  3. Select the + button on the bottom left-hand corner of the pop-up to add a new account.


  4. Select the radio button next to Other Mail Account… and then click the newly activated Continue button.


  5. On the Add a Mail Account pop-up, enter your Full Name, SecureMail Address and Password then click Sign in.


Add POP3 and SMTP Settings

POP3 is what allows you to retrieve/download incoming messages, and SMTP is what allows you to send new messages. The Mail app will require more information and bring you to a pop-up with advance options that you will have to set to enable your account to send and receive DataMotion SecureMail messages.

  1. Make the following changes to the advanced options, and then select Sign In

    • Account Type: POP
    • Incoming mail server: ssl.datamotion.com
    • Outgoing mail server: smtp.datamotion.com

  2. Once you have signed in, an Account pop-up will appear. Select the Account Information tab


  3. Select the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) drop down menu and choose “Edit SMTP Server List…”


  4. A new pop-up will appear. Select the Advanced tab and make the following changes then click OK.

    • Port: 587
    • Use SSL: Make sure this option is checked
    • Austhentication: External (TLS client Certificate)

  5. Back in the Accounts pop-up, choose the Advanced Tab and make the following changes then click OK.

    • Port: 995
    • Use SSL: Make sure this option is checked
    • Austhentication: Password
