Setting up iCloud e-mail into your popular e-mail client may be seen a little bit complicated but it's easy.

First of all, if you will use a third party app, you should generate an app-specific password. To create your app-specific password:
  1. Login to your Apple account.
  2. Find the security section
  3. In the "App-Specific Passwords" section, click "Generate Password" link.
  4. Then follow the procedures on the page.
It is that easy! Now, you have your app-specific password, so that you can use this password to login your account.

Now you can create a profile in your e-mail app. This may differ by apps but general settings are same. You need IMAP and SMTP settings to create an e-mail profile. IMAP is a protocol for getting e-mails into your app and SMTP is for sending e-mails to outside.

IMAP (Incoming) Server Settings for iCloud
  • IMAP Server Name/Address: imap.mail.me.com
  • Server Port: 993
  • Security Protocol: SSL (If SSL does not exist, select TLS)
  • Username: Your username for your iCloud address (e.g. you should enter james for james@icloud.me, if it's not accepted you can try the full address).
  • Password: The app-specific password we created previously.

SMTP (Outgoing) Server Settings for iCloud

  • SMTP Server Name/Address: imap.mail.me.com
  • Server Port: 587
  • Security Protocol: SSL (If SSL does not exist, select TLS)
  • Username: Your username for your iCloud address (e.g. you should enter james for james@icloud.me, if it's not accepted you can try the full address).
  • Password: The app-specific password we created previously.
  • If there is a section for "SMTP Authentication Required", enable it.

That's all! Now you have set your iCloud e-mail into your e-mail client.
