All new iCloud Mail accounts now come with an email address. As an existing user, we'd like to offer you this new address as well. We have reserved xxx@icloud.comfor you, and you can now use this address with your iOS devices and computers by following these simple instructions.

If you prefer, you can continue to use your current email address just as you always have.

No matter which address you use, you'll continue to receive all your mail, whether it's sent to your,, or address.


In the simple instructions it says.....

In OS X Mountain Lion or Lion v10.7.2 (or later)

  • Go to Mail Preferences > Composing.
  • Click the Send new messages from drop-down and select the email address you’d like to use.

Npo mention of other versions of OSX??????
