How To Reset Your Mac OS X Mail Preferences

Mac computers come equipped with a Mail App to help organize your e-mail accounts. This article will show you how to reset your e-mail preferences to the default settings on Mac OS X.

How To Reset Your Mail Preferences

The procedure is as follows:

  • Select Finder > in your Menu Bar and open the "Go" menu (at the top of the screen).
  • Select "Go to Folder..."

  • Type the following: ~/Library/Preferences

  • Search for the file named com.apple.mail.plist. You can search using CMD F and entering the file name, or just scrolling down to find it.

  • Once located, delete "com.apple.mail.plist" and relaunch the Mail app.

Your mail settings will now have been reset.
