Posted on November 3, 2012 by Gee Are Pabst

Setting up iCloud email in Windows 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!
