  4. Enter your full name, email address and email password in the spaces provided, then click Sign In

  5. If  you wish to sync your Contacts with the Apple Address Book, and your Calendar with iCal leave those boxes checked. Typically you should leave all the boxes checked. When you have finished your selection, click Done

  7. Close the window by clicking on the red ball on the top left of the Internet Account window, this will return you to your Inbox. You will see that the system is downloading your messages and your folders will begin to appear.

Large mailboxes may take several hours to fully sync!! Please leave Apple Mail open, and your computer online and awake for it to sync.
