Outlook 2013 iconSome people face problems with setting up iCloud email (@me.com account) in the Windows 8 mail app and/or in Outlook 2013 on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. I’ve already reported how it works for the Windows mail app on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. But how does it work for Outlook 2013? Officially, iCloud control panels does only support iCloud email on Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 on a Windows computer. However, you can set up iCloud email on Outlook 2013 as well by setting the outgoing server (SMTP) on TLS!

The set up steps are the following:

If you still face problems check if the IMAP server is ‘p08-imap.mail.me.com’ and ‘p08-smtp.mail.me.com’. Alternatively, try p01, p02, p03,….

It is very important to switch on SSL for IMAP and TLS for SMTP! After clicking on ‘OK’ iCloud email in Outlook 2013 on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 should work now.

Stay tuned! 😉
