How to Setup email account OS X 10.9.5

Setup email account OS X 10.9.5

Cannot create usable mail account on Mac.

Created Apple ID:

Apple ID send verification email to above address

Cannot create Apple or Google mail with Apple ID credentials - I am stuck in loop - no mailbox to open for verification letter

“A verification letter has been sent to”…

Open Mail - no can do - no mailbox setup - asks to choose mail account to add - already did this, as above - 2X!

How do I get out of this mess - Created Apple ID & Mail (iCloud) account

“Your email address haas not been verified - check your email and try again”

How do I check email? no matter what I do, keep getting 'Not been verified' message

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Where does that email domain live? Your email account should exist somewhere like your ISP or Gmail, etc. You should be able to access your email account using a browser.
