If you have purchased Apple devices in the past such as laptops, phones, tablets, or computers, you most likely already have an Apple ID set up. If you are wondering how you can use the all-in-one Apple iCloud service that can be accessed through any web browser whether you are using a PC, Linux or Apple computer, then this quick guide will take you through the process of how to use iCloud Mail.
Your default iCloud Mail account is built into your Apple iCloud which can be accessed from your devices and internet browser, if desired. Using Apple Mail on the browser sometimes makes it easier to organize and respond to emails, allowing you to be more productive with a mouse and keyboard rather than a small screen device or touch keyboard.
If you want to know more about iCloud Mail Features Available including setting Custom email domainsAnd the Manage email aliasesAnd the Choose a default email address To send mail from and more. This quick guide covers the main areas of interest that walks you through each and how to manage them. First, to access your iCloud mail, you’ll need to sign in through your browser by going to the iCloud.com website and using your Apple ID to access. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend setting up two-factor authentication or two-step verification which we’ll cover in a later guide.
It’s also worth noting that if you sign up for iCloud+, you’ll benefit from many features that aren’t only available on the standard Apple iCloud account, for example, you can customize your iCloud mail address with a custom domain name. Plus, invite your family members to use the same domain with their iCloud Mail accounts. It’s easier for all of you to communicate using one domain name instead of the ones provided by Apple.
How to use iCloud Mail
Custom email domain for iCloud Mail
If you want to add a custom email domain to your iCloud mail account, it is worth noting that it is not available in all countries or regions at the moment. To see if your country or region is supported, go to the official Apple Support site. To add a custom email domain:
1. Log in to your iCloud Mail Account using the browser of your choice
2. Once logged in, go to Account settings section inside iCloud.
3. Add The custom email domain you wish to use.
Once added, you can receive an email to your custom address and the messages will appear in the same inbox as your iCloud mail address, along with any email aliases you may have created. When sending an email, you can select the addresses you want to send from when writing a message and change the name that appears in the From field. If you want to continue using your custom domain, you can set this as the default email address to use when sending via iCloud Mail.
