In case the automatic setup fails, here is the manual setup for the Apple Mail email client:

  • To add an account, choose Mail > Add Account from the menu bar in Mail.
  • Or choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Internet Accounts, then click the type of account to add.

Name: is your real name

Email Address: your full email address

Password: the password belonging to the email address


If it is unable to verify the account name or Password, continue:

Email Address: full email address

User Name: also the full email address [not your name; counter intuitive]

Password: the email accounts password

Account Type: Choose POP or IMAP according to your needs

Incoming Mail Server: rhino.micsbotswana.com

Outgoing Mail Server: rhino.micsbotswana.com

Sign In and your done 🙂
