The MobileMe Mail POP server settings are necessary to know so that you can use your @me.com email address in an email client to download your emails and view your email folders that are stored on the mail server.

If the MobileMe Mail Me.com POP settings from below do not work in the email program you're using, try a different email client. If you're still running into issues, read the information at the bottom of this page for more help on what POP servers are for and why they might not be all that you need.

IMAP is often used as a replacement for POP so that you can better synchronize your mail across all your email programs and apps. If you'd rather use IMAP, you need the MobileMe Mail Me.com IMAP server settings instead.

MobileMe Mail Me.com POP Settings

  • MobileMe Mail Me.com POP server address: mail.me.com
  • MobileMe Mail Me.com POP username: Your MobileMe Mail username
    • Note: The username is what precedes "@me.com" in your MobileMe Mail address. So, if your MobileMe Mail email address is "example@mac.com", your username is "example." If using just the username does not work, try adding the rest of the address including the "@me.com" portion.
  • MobileMe Mail Me.com POP password: Your MobileMe Mail password
  • MobileMe Mail Me.com POP port: 995
  • MobileMe Mail Me.com POP TLS/SSL required: yes

More Information on MobileMe Mail Me.com Accounts

MobileMe has been replaced by iCloud. You have a @me.com email address if you made an email account with Apple prior to September 19, 2012, or if you migrated your MobileMe account over to an iCloud account before August 1, 2012.

According to Apple, if you had a working @mac.com email address as of July 9, 2008, you kept your MobileMe account active, and you moved to iCloud before August 1, 2012, you can use @icloud.com, @me.com, and @mac.com email addresses with your iCloud account.

If you can't get your @me.com account to send and receive mail, remember that the POP settings are only necessary for downloading emails. The MobileMe Mail Me.com SMTP server settings are required in order to send mail from your @me.com address.
