How to configure domain-based emails in Mac Mail?

Apple Mail, also called Mac Mail, is an email client that comes with all Apple computers and mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. When you use Mac Mail, you are essentially downloading a copy of your domain emails from the mail server to your computer (or any device that uses Apple Mail). When you use an email client, you can access emails when you don’t have an Internet connection, once they have been downloaded onto your computer.

Furthermore, Mac Mail also allows you to sync your domain emails across Mac computers, iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches. As an alternative to manually entering your email settings, you can use iCloud to sync your mail account settings (e.g. username and password) across multiple devices.
