If you have 2-factor authentication enabled in your iCloud account, you'll need to generate an app-specific password for setting up SMTP in your ISN!

Setting this up is quick and easy!

Log into your iCloud account here:

https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage

Navigate to the section labeled Security and click the Generate Password button.

Name the password something like ISN and click Create


On the next screen you'll be given an app-specific password! Copy that password, and paste it into the 'Password' field in your ISN under Settings -- SMTP Settings in the record for your iCloud account.

If you don't have an iCloud account set up, click Add SMTP Setting

In the pop-up box add the following information:

  • Email Address: your full @me.com Email Address (including @me.com) (Example: YourUsername@me.com)
  • Server: smtp.mail.me.com
  • Username: your_email_account_username (Example: YourUsername@me.com)
  • Password: Your email account password (Password you use to login into your email account.)
  • Port: 587
  • Check the box that says, This SMTP server requires TLS
