Set Up An iCloud Email Account On Android

  • Incoming mail server:
    • Server name: mail.me.com
    • SSL required: Yes
    • Port: 993
    • Username: Add only the name portion of your iCloud email address. So if it’s [email protected], just the “andrewsmith” part.
    • Password: Insert your iCloud email address password. You can also choose to generate an app-specific password.
  • Outgoing mail server:
    • Server name: mail.me.com
    • SSL Required: Yes
    • Port: 587
    • SMTP Authentication Required: Yes
    • Username: Your full iCloud email address, including the @icloud.com part
    • Password: Use the password you used in the incoming mail server section, whether it was your original or the app-specific password you generated.

You are almost done. Tap on Next or Continue.

If it throws an error that says SSL required in either on incoming or outgoing mail server then use TSL instead.
