    Hey guys. I am trying to setup iCloud email on my desktop since there is obviously no web portal for it yet.

    I've looked up a lot of mobileme setup tutorials but it doesn't seem to work for iCloud, or they are outdated, and most of them don't actually contain the information I need.

    Has anyone tried doing this yet? I really like using my iCloud email address as it's a lot more professional than gmail (in my opinion), but I can't only use it from my phone.

    Nope. Won't work until Apple officially releases it in the fall.

    try using server port 587 for outgoing, with host name smtp.me.com. and server port 993 for incoming. Not sure if this works or if you've tried it, but just a guess.

    Why is setting up email accounts so easy on a phone, and so incredibly difficult on a computer... -_-

    I wish Apple made a mail app for Windows. Though that will definitely never happen. haha

    Just use the MobileMe setup settings. Should work fine so long as you have a .me or .mac account that is active.
