I was wondering why all of a sudden I could choose to send emails from @icloud.com as well as @me.com. That appeared out of nowhere in my iPhone's mail app. I read people are mentioning a mail they woudl have received about this thing happening..? I didn't see any.
Anyways, as Google is your friend... I found this popping up in my search wizzardry:
If you go to to the iCloud Mail prefs on the web interface:
in the composing tab, you will see a setting called "Send From".
There you can choose which default address to use.
@icloud.com was the setting, (which I never visited before). I left it at that, as I assume it is the whole point.
below it is a setting "choose which address you would like to be able to send from"
There you can choose be able to send from both @me.com and @icloud.com (set as default), and you can choose to not send from the non-default address above it...
you can always get email on both @me.com and @icloud.com
you can choose from which one to send as default, and if you want to be able to send from both...
It would be cool to have Apple send a auto reply to people using the one you don't use, so you have only in- and outgoing traffic trough one of them...
Does this solve the issue..?
No, believe the problem was described again..
While most of the users can choose to send from either @me.com OR @icloud.com, Apple allows for recieving mails only on the .. @me.com address for many users as of today. Meaning, the @iCloud.com id still needs to be activated at the backend by Apple for many many users.
Imaginary situation, if i were to activate the @icloud.com as the default address, i would be able to send mails without an issue - but - only to wonder - why i don't get responses.. q;-) Unless of course an expliciti 'Reply to" address is set. But then this would beat the purpose of having an @iCloud.com id - or? ;-)
