Mail Server Settings for iCloud Email Clients

Mail server settings

Refer to your email app’s documentation for information about how to use these settings. iCloud Mail uses the IMAP and SMTP standards supported by most modern email apps. iCloud does not support POP. If you set up an account using iCloud System Preferences or macOS Mail in 10.7.4 or later, you won’t see these settings because they’re automatically configured.

IMAP information for the incoming mail server

  • Server name: imap.mail.me.com
  • SSL Required: Yes
    If you see an error message when using SSL, try using TLS instead.
  • Port: 993
  • Username: This is usually the name part of your iCloud email address (for example, emilyparker, not [email protected]). If your email client can’t connect to iCloud using just the name part of your iCloud email address, try using the full address.
  • Password: Generate an app-specific password.

SMTP information for the outgoing mail server

  • Server name: smtp.mail.me.com
  • SSL Required: Yes
    If you see an error message when using SSL, try using TLS or STARTTLS instead.
  • Port: 587
  • SMTP Authentication Required: Yes
  • Username: Your full iCloud email address (for example, [email protected], not emilyparker)
  • Password: Use the app-specific password that you generated when you set up the incoming mail server.
