My domain hosted here is spinland.biz. For some years I've had the email handled through Google Apps and so the MX records were set up accordingly.

Now I want to migrate back to hosting my mail on the TCH server and connect my Mac Mail client app via IMAP, but I'm having trouble getting things to work.

I deleted all the Google MX records and added two new ones, spinland.biz at priority 0 and mail.spinland.biz at priority 1. Was that correct? If not, what should I have entered?

For the IMAP connection, what server names and port numbers do I use? I can't find any IMAP specific (using SSL) setup instructions at all, much less for the Mac Mail app. The defaults (mail.spinland.biz for both directions and port 993) don't seem to be working.

I've done a fair bit of googling but haven't turned up anything useful. Help, please?

Many thanks in advance!

I went ahead and opened a trouble ticket and got everything fixed up. Thanks anyway!
