How To Easily Setup iCloud Email On Android Running ICS

A great news for iCloud and Android users! After spending quite some time, we successfully configured iCloud email account onto Galaxy Nexus running stock ICS. The process is simple and works afterall. You can simply setup iCloud email from the default email client application. Launch email app, and add an account.

Add the following settings for incoming mail.


Add username and password credentials. Make sure you to exclude

IMAP server:
Port: 993
Security type: SSL/TLS (Accept all certificates)

 Add the following settings for outgoing mail.


SMTP server:

Port: 587
Security type: STARTTLS (accept all certificates)

Tick ‘Yes’ for Require Sign In and add username /password credentials excluding again.

It works as it did for most users. We tested this out on different Android devices. Different emails were sent and received as a part of testing and workability of account. It was smooth just like other accounts on the device. Give it a try, if having any issues or problems we would be more than happy to help around!

  1. I have a droid Incredible, 3G. (I’m not happy with it, but I have to wait till Oct. for my contract to expire, at which time I plan to go iPhone). I’ve set up my mac a/c per the instructions.  I can receive mail, but I can’t send mail.  I assume this is an smtp setting issue.  I keep getting an error message.  I’ve tried several settings. Anyone having this problem?

  2. I was having issues connecting and unable to send email as well. A quick refresh to settings worked fine.. thanks!!!>

  3. for all of you who are having problem, … a quick refresh would be good. I mean after initializing all the settings.. close the app and re-open the connection and refresh. It should work. It worked for me on my s 3 and transformer tab.

  4. Worked a treat – I had tried lots of other forum comments, these were the only settings which actually connected to server and set-up properly…thanks!
