  • There, look for the section accounts
  • Select add account. In many devices the os is an option that is Personal (IMAP) along with a Gmail icon. If apostáis for that option, it will automatically detect your iCloud account.
  • In the case that you do not have that option, you must select the mail option and then to enter the data manually. Also you must enter the server details manually. In this case, there are two types of servers. We leave you with these data:
    • Incoming server (incoming mail Server)

      • Requirement SSL: Yes
      • Port: 993
      • user Name: The name of your iCloud account before the @ (For example, if your account is pacoperez@icloud.com only put pacoperez)
      • Password: Enter your password in the normal way
    • Outgoing server (outgoing mail server)
      • Name server: smtp.mail.me.com
      • Requirement SSL: Yes
      • Port: 587
      • Authentication SMTP: Yes
      • user Name: iCloud Account-complete (also the part after the @)
      • Password: this is the Password that you have used in the previous part

With these steps the process should be terminated. Most Android phones give you the option of the account IMAP. Without a doubt, greatly facilitates the process, so that if your device has this option, do not hesitate to use it.
