It is often the case that people are afraid to deviate from their comfort zones, and with so many having become heavily invested in a particular ecosystem, it’s hard to blame them. Beside from the familiarity of sticking with an iPhone, or a Samsung Galaxy, or a Nokia Lumia, for example, there’s a fear that we’re going to massively disrupt our lives if things don’t look or run in the precise fashion to which we’ve become accustomed to. But if you have felt brave enough to make a switch, then your sense of adventure and nobility must be commended and if you just so happen to have recently bought an Android after a substantial period of using iOS, then there’s a good chance you’re an iCloud email user.

Though many mobile device owners have an affinity to iOS, or Android, or Windows Phone, but they regularly make the leap from one platform to another. Often, this transition is smooth, thanks largely to the fact that scores of apps and services are available to each of the big three mobile OS, but for few aspects, making the leap can be a little tricky. Such is the case with iCloud email for the users moving from iPhone to an Android handset, but thankfully, there is away to get your iCloud mail account work outside of Apple’s walled garden. The procedure is mentioned below.

How to Setup iCloud Email Account on Android

Step1 – Fire up the stock Email client on your Android device. Note, however, that the below configuration steps can be applied to a whole host of third-party Play Store email clients.

Step 2 – Enter your iCloud username and password as shown in the screenshot and then tap on Manual setup and after that tap on IMAP.

Step 3 – Now, you’ll be setting up the inbound IMAP server. Where prompted, you will need to enter the following information:

  • IMAP server: imap.mail.me.com
  • Username: [this-part-is-your-username]@icloud.com
  • Password: your Apple ID password
  • Port number: 993

In Addition, certificates should be set to ‘SSL’ and if you jump into any sort of error then try ‘TLS’ instead and then tap next.

Step 4 – In this step it’s time to configure the SMTP server for your outgoing mail. As before, key in the following where prompted:

  • SMTP server: smtp.mail.me.com
  • Username: [this-part-is-your-username]@icloud.com
  • Password: your Apple ID password
  • Port number: 587

Remember that meanwhile, certificates should be set to ‘SSL’ or ‘TLS’

This is all what you have to do to get out of this small but astonishing problem.
