HT4864: iCloud: Mail server settings for email clientsLearn about iCloud: Mail server settings for email clients

What I would like:
1. To keep my existing Yahoo email address.
2a. To be able to see my email account on a Mac.
2b. To be able to see my email account on an iPad.
2c. These should be synchronised.
3. To be able to read, draft replies to and tidy the emails whilst offline.
I can see that I could logon to the Yahoo account from either the Mac or the iPad and that would tick 1, 2a, 2b & 2c. I could use Mail.app (on, say the Mac) and that would tick 1, 2a & 3. Is there any way that I can tick 1, 2a, 2b, 2c and 3?
I would therefore disagree and say that there is a "point"..."much" may be a matter of opinion though. I was kind of hoping that iCloud could act like an Outlook exchange server-type set-up on top of the Yahoo account.
Any suggestions? Thanks

iCloud does not have anything at all to do with other email services. You can access Yahoo webmail on any device using the browser (at least I assume there's no problem about this with an iPad). To use Yahoo with a Mail app I believe you need the paid-for Yahoo Plus version.

You can do everything you want by just setting up Yahoo mail as IMAP on all your devices/computers:
Even if iCloud could access Yahoo mail (which it can't and isn't supposed to) there still wouldn't be any point doing it that way when Yahoo lets you do what you want directly.
