Posted on November 3, 2012 by Gee Are Pabst
Setting up iCloud email in Windows 8 mail app is not that simple, especially, because certain support documents of Apple or Microsoft are not correct in all details. Very important are the SSL-settings mentioned in the later text.
Here we are:
In the Mail App go to settings, account, add account and choose ‘IMAP’ for setting up iCloud email. The following settings should be filled in:
Username = …@me.com
imap.mail.me.com, SSL = on, Port = 993
smtp.mail.me.com, SSL = off, Port = 587
Outgoing server requires authentication = yes
Use the same username and password to send and receive email = yes
It is very important to switch on SSL for IMAP and off SSL for SMTP!
