HOWTO | Pow er up Mail at iCloud.com
1 Forward emails
Open Mail in iCloud.com and click the cog icon at the bottom-left corner. Select Preferences from the pop-up menu to see your options. In Forwarding, click the first checkbox and enter an email address. This will forward emails sent to your iCloud.com email to wherever you specify. You can delete forwarded messages by ticking the second checkbox.
Create email aliases
Aliases are secondary email addresses that shield your main iCloud.com account from spam. You can use an alias for online shopping and other web activities, and it can be disabled when you don’t need it. In Accounts, click ‘Add an alias’, add your alias, and, optionally, a label and label colour. Click OK. If the alias is not available, pick one that is.
Manage email aliases
In the Accounts section of Mail’s preferences, aliases are listed in the left sidebar. You can have up to three aliases at once. To manage one, select it; you can then update the label and label colour, and the associated name. If the alias isn’t in use, you can disable it by ticking its checkbox. If you decide you no longer want it at all, click Delete to remove it.
Create server-side rules
In the Rules section of Mail’s preferences, you can define rules to automatically organise your email. Click ‘Add a Rule’, and use the pop-up menu to select a condition and action; click Done to confirm. In the Rules list, the ‘i’ button enables you to update or delete the rule. If you’re going away, click the Vacation tab instead and set an auto-reply.
