This article explains how to check iCloud email from any web browser or Windows 10 PC.

How to Check iCloud Email from Windows

Your iCloud account is compatible with the Windows 10 built-in Calendar and Mail applications, allowing you to access your email, appointments, and reminders via your PC's default feature set. Follow the steps below to get iCloud email set up in Windows 10.

Add your iCloud account to Windows. Enter settings in the Windows Search box, located in the lower-left corner of the screen next to the Start button.



When the pop-out menu appears, select Settings: Trusted Microsoft Store app, found under the Best match heading.

The Windows Settings interface should now be displayed, overlaying your desktop. Click Accounts.

Select the Email & app accounts option, located under the Accounts header in the left menu pane.

Click Add an account, found in the Email, calendar and contacts section.

The Add an account dialog will now appear, containing a list of account types. Select the one labeled iCloud.

Enter your iCloud account credentials in the fields provided and click on the Sign in button once complete.

A confirmation message should appear, informing you that your account was set up successfully. Click on the Done button to exit the Add an account interface.

Enter mail in the Windows Search box, located in the lower-left corner of the screen next to the Start button.

When the pop-out menu appears, click Mail: Trusted Microsoft Store app, found under the Best match heading.

The Windows Mail app may not work as expected with your iCloud email if your account uses two-factor authentication. If you encounter a problem where your iCloud account does not download email or your calendar but instead displays the error message 'Attention required', check your email from a web browser.

The Windows Mail app will now launch, with your new account configured to download both your iCloud email and your iCloud calendar.

How to Check iCloud Email from a Web Browser

If you're running an older version of Windows or are on another operating system altogether, you can still access your iCloud email from any major web browser. 

Open your web browser and navigate to https://www.icloud.com/.

Enter your iCloud username (email address) and password, clicking the login arrow once complete.

If your account is enabled for two-factor authentication, you'll now be prompted to enter a six-digit verification code that should have been sent to your iPad or iPhone. Type that code into the fields provided.

You might now be asked whether or not you trust the browser that you're using. If you're on a public device or a shared computer, we recommend selecting the Don't Trust button. If you're on your own personal device and do not want to be asked to enter a verification code each time you log into iCloud, click on Trust. If you aren't sure what to do at this time, just choose the Not Now button instead.

A dashboard of icons will now be displayed, not unlike those found on your iOS Home Screen. Select the Mail icon to send and receive iCloud email, or the Calendar icon to access your appointments and reminders.
