Your Me.com (Apple iCloud)
account includes IMAP access, allowing you to access your email from mobile devices and desktop email clients.
This eliminates the need to use Me.com's webmail interface. Other email programmes can be used to check your email and send messages (like Mailspring, Outlook Express, Apple Mail, or Mozilla Thunderbird). You can optimise your workflow by using desktop email programmes. They usually have more options, and your email stays on your computer even if you're not connected to the internet.
