How to integrate Aritic Mail with Apple Mail?

These instructions help you to add an SMTP server to an existing Apple Mail account or Client, However you can also add these settings at the account creation stage.

Adding Aritic Mail SMTP settings

Go to Mail -> Preferences (⌘,). On the account, you want to edit, click the tab that says Server Settings, then click the Outgoing Mail Account drop-down and select Edit SMTP Server List….


Next, click the + under the list of SMTP servers, and add a new one.


Then enter the server details:

  • Description: Aritic Mail
  • User Name: Aritic Mail account username
  • Password: Aritic Mail account password
  • Host Name:
  • Uncheck Automatically manage connection settings if you want to specify Custom Ports, Encryption Type and Authentication
  • Port: Specify port
  • Encryption: Check or uncheck Use TLS/SSL
  • Authentication: Password


Now the Aritic Mail  SMTP Server can be specified on the Accounts tab of the Preferences window in the Outgoing Mail Account drop-down. Once this is selected, mail sent out of Apple Mail going forward will use the SMTP server chosen until specified otherwise.

Attachment Compatibility Settings

Mail will sometimes attach images in a way that is incompatible with other email clients. However, this behavior can be changed so that Mail will send more traditional non-inline attachments.

  1. Open Terminal (found in Finder > Applications > Utilities).
  2. In Terminal, paste the following:defaults write DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool yes
  3. Press return.
  4. Restart the Mail app.

If you wish to restore the normal behavior of Mail, repeat the steps above while using the following command:defaults write DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool yes
