How to manually configure Apple Mail via EWS.

Versions of Apple Mail

  2. Under the Mail menu, choose Preferences.
  3. Click Accounts.
  4. Click the Plus (+) icon in the lower-left corner of the Preferences window.
  5. In the Add Account window, enter:
    • Full name: Your name as you want it to be displayed
    • Email address: yournetid@illinois.edu
    • Password: Your Active Directory password
