Before email will work for the first time you need to request this service to be activated on your Aquiss account. Please contact Aquiss services by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01746 708090. Mac Mail is Apple Macintosh's default email software. Use this guide to help you setup Mac Mail to use your Aquiss email account. To run Mail: Double-click the Mail application icon in the Applications folder, or click it in the 'Dock'.
Setting up for the first time:
