I’m trying to set up my MacBook email client so that I can read/write email for my DreamHost website mail account. I’ve followed one DreamHost link to see if it would help (http://wiki.dreamhost.com/E-mail_Client_Configuration)
but it doesn’t really walk me through the whole setup procedure, so I’m making a mistake somewhere in the procedure because the email client tells me it can’t connect.
I can access my account through Safari (mailboxes.et cetera) and can log in, and am then able to receive and send mail. But I’d prefer to be able to use the MacBook email client instead, as it’s easier than going through Safari.
I’m running OS X 10.9.1 on a MacBook Pro. The email client setup steps aren’t the same as those shown on the setup guides for OS 10.3, 10.4, and 10.5.
When I tell the email client to go to the DreamHost email system, I get the message “An SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made.”
Help? Where do I turn for step-by-step setup information?
