First, I’m not computer lingo literate, so please keep replies in layman’s terms. Thanks!
I’ve had to reconfigure things in my work computer (MacBook Pro) & Dreamhost since the HeartBleed issue. Since my computer was handed down to me, and verifying the certificate required entering a password for the Dreamhost mail admin (through the Mail program in the MacBook), I do not know that password and the person who’s email address is attached to the admin could not recall it. I therefore went to an Apple store. The only solution they came up with was to delete her email address and set up a new one.
This brings me to my question: how do I correctly set up the “Incoming Mail Server”?
I need correct ‘account type’, ‘description’, ‘incoming mail server’, ‘user name’, and ‘password’. I believe that I have the last two correct, but when I’ve attempted to complete this task (taking direction from a previous forum chat), I get an error message that tells me,
“The IMAP server “Hostname” is not responding. Try checking the network connection, and that the server name is correct. Otherwise, the server might be temporarily unavailable. If you continue, you might not be able to receive messages.”
