An IMAP email account is an account that stores messages on the mail server. The advantage to checking emails with IMAP is that you have a central storage for all of your mail and your archives can be checked from any computer with an internet connection. This is beneficial if you are checking from multiple computers or devices (like an iPhone). The main disadvantage of checking email with IMAP is that you are limited to the allocated storage space on the server for that specific email account. If you are checking email from a single computer 90% of the time and/or regularly receive large attachments, you will want to instead set up your mail as a POP account. Instructions for that can be found here. To create and check an IMAP account with the GyazMail application, follow the below instructions:

1. Login to the cPanel for your hosting package, commonly found at ( should be replaced with your actual domain name)

2. Click on the Email Accounts module in cPanel.

3. Scroll down the page until you see a list of your existing email addresses. Click More then Configure Mail Client for the email address you want to setup in the Apple Mail client.

4. On the next screen you will see a list of email programs and methods of checking email. Near the bottom of the page you will see Manual Settings specific to this email address. This will have all of the information you need, less your password.
