Question: Windows 10 not accepting iCloud Password

I'm trying to run iCloud on Windows Mail, but every time it just goes "Your iCloud Settings are Out-of-date" and it never fetches any mail! I do not have two-factor authentication enabled. Help!

Dell Latitude-OTHER, Windows 10

Hi, AppleAuthority,


Thanks for reaching out via the Apple Support Communities. From your post, I see you are attempting to sign into your iCloud email account using Outlook on a Windows PC. I'm happy to help!


A recent update has made app-specific passwords necessary in order to utilize your iCloud email account with non-Apple devices. This means that, in order to sign into Outlook with your iCloud email account, you need to set up an app-specific password, as detailed here: Using app-specific passwords - Apple Support . In order to use an app-specific password, you first need to set up two-factor authentication, as detailed in this article: Two-factor authentication for Apple ID - Apple Support .

Once you've done that, you can add your iCloud email account to Outlook, using the steps here: iCloud: Set up iCloud Mail on your devices .


Cheers!
