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:
- Login to your Apple account.
- Find the security section
- In the “App-Specific Passwords” section, click “Generate Password” link.
- 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.
