iCloud email in Outlook 2016 on Windows 10_01_set up iCloud for Windows

Outlook 2013 Logo 256x256On Windows 10, you can set up iCloud Email in Outlook 2016 (Preview) by using iCloud for Windows (formerly known as ‘iCloud control panel’). Beside iCloud Email, you can also set up iCloud Calendars, iCloud contacts and iCloud tasks in Outlook 2016 (Preview) on Windows 10 (Insider Preview, build number 10074 tested).

Update December 7, 2015: iCloud for Windows 5.1 supports Outlook 2016. Update iCloud for Windows now to access your iCloud Mail, iCloud Contacts, iCloud Calendars, iCloud reminders and tasks in Outlook 2016. iCloud notes are not supported. For downloading iCloud for Windows 5.1 and for details, see Apple’s support document. If you still face problems check the following post:

Update August 3, 2015: Windows 10 is not (anymore!) supported by iCloud Control Panel. For details, see Apple’s support document.

However, some people face problems with setting up iCloud email (@me.com account) in the Windows 10 mail app and/or in Outlook 2016 on Windows 10. I’ve also reported how it works for the Windows mail app on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 and for Outlook 2013 on Windows 10. But how does it work for Outlook 2016 on Windows 10? Officially, iCloud for Windows supports only Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. and iCloud email, calendars, contacts and task require Outlook 2007 or later to be shown in iCloud for Windows. Despite this, you can set up iCloud email in Outlook 2016 on Windows 10 as well if the outgoing server (SMTP) is set on TLS!

The set up steps are the following:

Notes:

  • 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,….
  • The username is the first part of your iCloud email address: ‘MyName’, if your iCloud email is MyName@icloud.com.

It is very important to switch on SSL for IMAP and TLS for SMTP! After clicking on ‘OK’ iCloud email, calendars, contacts and tasks in Outlook 2016 on Windows 10 should work now.

Stay tuned! 😉
