What are the iCloud SMTP Settings

Mac.com and MobileMe

MobileMe (formerly .Mac and iTools) was a subscription-based collection of online services and software offered by Apple Inc. The mac.com domain predated the July 2008 relaunch of Apple's web services as MobileMe by several years. All services were transitioned and replaced by iCloud and the service ceased as of June 30, 2012, with transfers to iCloud available until July 31, 2012.

Email Addresses

  • If you created an iCloud account on or after September 19, 2012, your email address ends with @icloud.com.  
  • If you created an iCloud account before September 19, 2012, or moved to iCloud with an active MobileMe account before August 1, 2012, you have both @me.com and @icloud.com email addresses.
  • If you had a working @mac.com email address as of July 9, 2008, kept your MobileMe account active, and moved to iCloud before August 1, 2012, you can use @icloud.com, @me.com, and @mac.com email addresses with your iCloud account.
