How to configure the Apple Mail desktop client to your Evergreen email on the Office 365 server.

Apple Mail

  • Open the Mail application.
  • If this is your first time using the application, you will automatically be prompted to connect an account. Select Exchange and then select Continue.
  • If you already have another account connected, click on the Mail menu and select Add Account > Exchange > and Continue.
  • Enter your Evergreen account details in the appropriate fields and click Sign In when done.
  • Choose the apps you want to use with this account, then click Done.
  • The application may take a few minutes to connect to your Evergreen Office 365 account for the first time.

Apple Mail trash settings

  • To ensure you do not accidentally permanently delete any mail, please take a moment to check your Apple Mail trash settings.
  • Click on the Mail menu and select Preferences.
  • Click on the Accounts tab and then select Mailbox Behaviors.
  • Under the Trash section, ensure that "Store deleted messages on the server" is checked, and set "Permanently erase deleted messages when:" to Never.
