Write and send email in Mail on iCloud.com
You can send messages and change the default folder for sent email.
Write and send email
In Mail on iCloud.com, click the Compose button above the message list.
A new window opens with a blank message.
Type one or more names or email addresses in the address field. Press Return or type a comma to end each name or address.
As you type, iCloud Mail tries to suggest a complete address. To use it, press Return.
If a list of suggested addresses appears, click an address to use it.
To view all of your contacts, click the Contacts button at the right end of the address field.
To include Cc and Bcc address fields, click Cc/Bcc.
In the Subject field, type a subject for the email.
If you want to send the message from an address you don’t usually use, click From, then choose a different address in the pop-up menu.
You have multiple addresses if you created an email alias or you have an @me.com or @mac.com address in addition to your @icloud.com address.
Type your message, then click Send in the top-right corner.
The time an email was sent appears in the message list or the email header (the information at the top of the email). If the time shown is incorrect, you need to change the time zone in Settings on iCloud.com. See Change the language or time zone on iCloud.com.
Change the default folder for sent email
In Mail on iCloud.com, click the Action pop-up menu in the sidebar, then choose Preferences.
If you don’t see the sidebar, see Show or hide the sidebar in Mail on iCloud.com.
In the Mailboxes section of the General pane, select “Save sent messages in,” then click the adjacent pop-up menu and choose a new folder.
Note: If you send an email with large attachments, it might be returned by the recipient’s email service if your email exceeds the size limit set by that email service. You can try sending the contents of your message in multiple emails, or using compression software, such as the Compress feature on a Mac, to make your attachments as small as possible.
