macOS ‘Sierra’: how-to set a POP3 email account in Mail.app

Did you notice? On macOS 10.12 ‘Sierra’, when you try to add a new email account with Mail.app using the guided procedure it seems that you can only have an IMAP one…

Of course you can still have a POP3 account but, like it’s in Apple style in those last years, you have to use a gimnik to achieve the result [if you’re not going Apple-way-of-doing-things be prepared to this].

So let’s see how to do this. Open Mail.app and go to its Preferences, here point to the Account section and try adding a new account… make sure to give a wrong password on pourpose when asked:

Sierra add email account 01(My System is set with Italian, so forgive me the language)

After some work behind the scenes, the procedure will say that something is wrong and will ask some more details for this brand new account we’re setting up. As you can see in the following screenshot some more fields to fill will appear, along with a courtain asking the “Account type” we want to set up: IMAP or POP3

Sierra add email account 02That’s it… all we have to do now is to put the correct valule for the POP3 incoming email server and the correct password!
Hope this can be of help to someone…

Go for lunch
This is the single best piece of business advice I can share with you: meet with people. Lunch is a great way to keep in touch, strengthen friendships, and sometimes be in the right place at the right time. At our studio, we stumbled into more (and often substantial) new work, just by sitting down with past/prospective clients over a burger and fries.

Sara Rosso’ recipe for a good WordPress website

During last week-end I had the chance to read over some old post in the When I have time weblog of Sara Rosso. Those slides were made for her speech at the latest International Food Blog Conference in Sept. 2015. I thought you might enjoy it as well as I did …
