Access your Mac.com (Apple iCloud) Account from an Email Program using IMAP

Mac.com (Apple iCloud) provides IMAP access to your Mac.com (Apple iCloud) account, so you can connect to your email from mobile devices and desktop email clients.

 
 

Mac.com supports IMAP / SMTP

This means you don't have to use Mac.com's webmail interface! You can check your email and send messages using other email programs (like Mailspring, Outlook Express, Apple Mail, or Mozilla Thunderbird). Using desktop email applications can improve your workflow. They typically offer more options, and your email is still available on your computer when you're disconnected from the internet.

Setup Your Mac.com Account with Your Email Program Using IMAP

To access your Mac.com email account from a desktop email program, you'll need the IMAP and SMTP settings below:

Mac.com (Apple iCloud) IMAP Server imap.mail.me.com
IMAP port993
IMAP securitySSL / TLS
IMAP usernameYour full email address

Mac.com (Apple iCloud) SMTP Server smtp.mail.me.com
