While unsupported, iCloud still allows access to your e-mail via IMAP, and sending via SMTP. Apple has published the necessary parameters for manually configuring your e-mail client to use the iCloud service.

Incoming (IMAP)

  • Server name: imap.mail.me.com
  • SSL required: yes
  • Port: 993 (is set by default)
  • Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
  • Password: Your iCloud password

Outgoing (SMTP)

  • Server name: smtp.mail.me.com
  • SSL required: yes
  • Port: 587
  • SMTP authentication required: Yes
  • Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
  • Password: Your iCloud password

SSL is required for both IMAP and SMTP. POP3 is not supported.
