The MobileMe Mail POP server settings are required to use your @me.com email address in a different email client. You must know what these setting are to download your messages and view folders that are stored on the mail server.

Information in this article applies specifically to POP servers. If you'd rather use IMAP, you need the MobileMe Mail Me.com IMAP server settings instead.

MobileMe Mail Me.com POP Settings

The POP settings for MobileMe Mail Me.com are as follows:

  • MobileMe Mail Me.com POP server address: mail.me.com
  • MobileMe Mail Me.com POP username: Your MobileMe Mail username
  • 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

The username precedes "@me.com" in your MobileMe Mail address. If using the username does not work, add the rest of the address including the "@me.com" portion.

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MobileMe has been replaced by iCloud.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, 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.

What to Do if You Can't Connect via POP

If the MobileMe Mail Me.com POP settings from above do not work in the email program you're using, try a different email client, or connect with IMAP instead.

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