An iCloud account that comes with an Apple device gives you access to a unique email address. While you may be used to using this email account in the Mail app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you can actually access iCloud Mail from any web browser (including Chrome and Microsoft Edge).
iCloud Mail is associated with your Apple ID, but only if your email ID ends in “@ icloud.com”
To get started, open a browser on your computer (Windows 10, Mac or Linux), iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone or tablet. Then enter the URL www.icloud.com/mail in your address bar.
If you know your iCloud email address, enter it here. If you don’t, you can enter the email address associated with your Apple ID and press Enter.
From there, type the password and hit Enter.
If you are using two-factor authentication (we recommend that you do this), enter the one-time password you received on one of your Apple devices.
Click the “Trust” button now so you don’t have to authenticate in that browser in the future.
You can also go to www.icloud.com and click on the “Mail” option.
If you don’t see the Mail option here, it means you haven’t set up an iCloud email address with your Apple ID. To do this, you need to set up iCloud on your iPhone, iPad or Mac.
And that’s it. You will now see your iCloud Mail inbox on the web.
From here you can browse all the emails in your inbox. You can also view your sent emails. Regular functions such as flagging and deletion of emails are also available.
You can also reply to emails or compose new emails (both of which open in new windows).
Since you are using iCloud Mail in a browser, we recommend that you log out when you are done. To do this, click on the name button in the top right corner and select the option “Sign Out”.
iCloud Mail will ask if you want to trust this browser. If you trust a browser, you can log in to iCloud Mail without entering the verification code. Click the “Trust and Sign Out” button.
And that’s it. You will be signed out of iCloud Mail.
As an umbrella term for all sync services, iCloud can seem quite confusing. Here’s a list of everything iCloud backs up.
