Depending on when you started using iCloud, your iCloud email addresses or aliases might end with @icloud.com, @me.com, or @mac.com. No matter which address you send email from, you'll get all email sent to your @me.com, @mac.com, or @icloud.com email addresses in your iCloud inbox.
Send email from your @icloud.com address
Open Mail and start a new email:
- If you only have an @icloud.com address and don't have any iCloud email aliases, it will appear in the Cc/Bcc, From field on your iOS device or the From field on your Mac and iCloud.com.
- If you have multiple email addresses, you might need to select your @icloud.com address:
- iOS: Tap Cc/Bcc, From, tap From, then choose your @icloud.com address.
- OS X: Choose your @icloud.com address from the From menu.
- iCloud.com: Click CC/Bcc From, then choose your @icloud.com address from the From menu.
Then complete your email and send it.
