Existing IMAP AccountsNote: We have found that updating your existing account settings often confuses Apple Mail, so we recommend saving your existing local mail folders, then deleting your existing cgl.ucsf.edu account, and recreating it. This is especially a problem if you have your Draft or Sent Messages saved on the server, or if you use CGL's Single Sign-On.
Bring the Accounts tab in the Preferences dialog:
- Account Information tab:
