    You need to install iCloud control panel on your Windows PC.

    POP will not work.

    I have to dissagree with you, I was able to send and receive all my test e-mails through my ISP using POP account,  Microsoft Outlook automatically configure all the settings without issues.

    Basically, If your ISP allows you, it will work flawlessly.

    Thank you and respectfully

    Unfortunatly is a corporate laptop.

    Hi David,

     

    Additional Information

    SSL is required for both IMAP and SMTP connection with iCloud. POP is not supported by iCloud

     

    From the Apple Support page for Mail in iCloud:

     

    iCloud Mail uses IMAP and SMTP standards supported by most modern email applications. You can use the server information below to manually configure your email application to send and receive iCloud Mail.

    Notes:

    • If you are using Mail on a Mac with OS X Lion (v10.7.2 or later), or Microsoft Outlook 2007 or  2010 on a Windows PC, follow these instructions for automated iCloud setup.
    • If you are using Mail on a Mac with Mac OS X Snow Leopard (v10.6), or a device with iOS 4, see this article with specific instructions.

    For more information on how to use this information with your email application, consult your application's documentation.

    IMAP (Incoming Mail Server) information:

    • Server name: imap.mail.me.com
    • SSL Required: Yes
    • Port: 993
    • Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
    • Password: Your iCloud password

    SMTP (outgoing mail server) information:

    • Server name: smtp.mail.me.com
    • SSL Required: Yes
    • Port: 587
    • SMTP Authentication Required: Yes
    • Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
    • Password: Your iCloud password

    Note: If you receive errors using SSL, try using TLS instead.

    Cheers,
