- Select 'Accounts and Import'
- Alongside 'Check mail from other accounts (using POP3)' select 'Add a POP3 mail account you own'
- Enter the email address to add and click 'Next Step'
- At the 'Add a mail account to your own' screen recomended settings are:

Username: [Full email address]
Password: [Email address password]
POP server: mail.[domain]
Port: 995
'Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server'
'Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail'

- 'Add Account'

You will be asked if you would also like to be able to send mail on behalf of the address. If you wish to:

- Enter the name you would like to show on your outbound mail
