All traffic between your devices and iCloud Mail and Notes is encrypted with SSL. Consistent with standard industry practice, iCloud does not encrypt data stored on IMAP mail servers. All Apple email clients support optional S/MIME encryption.



Does this mean that emails are not private? what are IMAP mail servers? I am concerned others could be reading my mail.
