Tried your instructions. My computer says account already exists, but status indicates offline. Enable box is checked.

Just open Mail on the Mac, then click on "Mail" in the top menu, then "Add accounts", and you will see this, then just click on "Other Mail Account" and follow the prompts----------------------

When in Mail, click on "Mail" again in the top menu on the Mac, then on  "Accounts".  You should now see a list of all your internet accounts.  Is the one in question in that list?  If it is, and it's offlne, it will be grayed out.
