Swisscom e-mail setup and WLAN configuration for Mac has completed the Mac versions of the e-mail and WLAN assistants developed for the Swiss market leader. Both applications have been compiled in the official Mac development environment.

They are compatible with Mac OS X (version 10.6 and higher, incl. OS X Lion) and contain the same features/functions as their Windows® twins, while using interfaces (GUIs) in the ‘classical’ Mac style. Thus, Mac users immediately feel at home and are able to operate the software without any difficulties.

In the course of the user-friendly, highly automated set up of the e-mail account, the Swisscom E-Mail Setup Assistant for Mac supports all current e-mail clients (Apple Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird as well as all compatible Microsoft® Office programs).
The assistant also supports IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol), thus ensuring automatic storing and relevance of all messages on the e-mail server – a particularly useful feature for webmail users.

The Swisscom WLAN assistant, on the other hand, takes care of automatic WLAN setup and configuration, including any provider-specific hardware components. All related information (WLAN credentials) is taken directly from the Swisscom server in order to establish the wireless connection at once. The WLAN credentials can easily be displayed and printed out.

With the Swisscom E-Mail Setup Assistant and the Swisscom WLAN Assistant, Mac customers of Switzerland’s largest telecom operator now will benefit as well from service tools for easy and trouble-free internet and e-mail operation.
