how do i change my email setting to change from pop to imap on a mac?

I have tried to delete the account and reinstall it but it automatically comes up as pop and cant be changes. I am trying to solve mail being continually downloaded, thousands even though I have deleted them on the server.  This slows the mac down very much. Tried the Virgin help but no help at all!!

Taken from this thread here

The unofficial way to manually set up the account is to enter the wrong password when setting up.  After this you can set up the account manually.

However the Official way is to Hold the Option Key when setting up the account.  The Create button changes to Continue instead and will then allow you to set up the account manually..

Take your pick as to which to use.
