how to set general,addresses,composing and vacation preferences on icloud

The Actions menu has a Preferences choice, which leads you to a window with five tabs: General, Addresses, Composing, Rules, and Vacation . In the sections below, we’ll go through each of these Preferences tables.


To set General preferences:

1) Click the Actions button, then choose Preferences.


2) Click the General tab to show the general preferences


3) Choose one or more of the following:


  • Load images in HTML messages shows you all images in messages.
  • If this is unchecked, you won’t see images in HTML mail unless you click a Load Images button in the message.


  • Show all folders at login shows you all the folders in the list when you sign in to iCloud mail. If you have a lot of folders, you might want to turn this off so that only the top level folders appear int eh list and you don’t have to scroll your browser window to see everything.


  • Show message previews tells the iCloud mail application to show the first couple of lines of each message in the message list. This is one of the default choices, and I find it extremely useful.


  • Forward my email to allows you to send all of your incoming email to another address. If you have an assistant who also monitors your mail, you might want to use this option. You’ll need to select the checkbox and enter the forwarding email address.


  • Delete messages after forwarding erases your incoming messages after they have been forwarded to the alternate email address.


  • Save sent message in allows you to pick the folder where sent messages are automatically filed from the pop-up menu. This is off by default, which makes no sense to me. Why wouldn’t you want copies of message that you send? The only reason I can think of is that an outgoing messages count against your iCloud storage quota.


  • Move deleted messages to allows you to choose the folder where deleted messages are sent, usually the Trash folder. A message moved to the Trash is automatically and permanently deleted after 30 days.


To set Addresses preferences:

1) Click the Actions button, then choose Preferences.


2) Click the Addresses tab


3) Click the Add an alias link to add an email alias (iCloud allows you to have up to three aliases), which is a secondary address that points to your main address. Email sent to one of the aliases is delivered to your main account. Here’s how it might work in practice: my main iCloud account address is But I might also create an alias of


4) In the Alias field, add the alias you want to you (you don’t need to enter the part).


5) Click OK. The site checks to see if the alias is already in use; if it is, the alias you asked for will be rejected, and you’ll be prompted for a new one.


6) Click Done.

The new alias appears in the Addresses Preferences pane.


You can use an alias as the From address in outgoing mail, if you want to keep a particular email address private. Replies will go to the alias.


To set Composing preferences:

1) Click the Action button, then choose Preferences.


2) Click the Composing tab


3) Choose one or more of the following:


  • Include original message when replying includes the entire message that you’re replying to as a quote. I usually prefer to edit the quote down to just the essentials, because I think that it makes email conversations easier to read.


  • Show Bcc field makes the blind carbon copy field always appear in the Add Message window.


  • Send outgoing messages using Unicode (UTF-8) tells Mail to allow your messages to contain non-Latin characters, such as Hebrew, Arabic, or Chinese.


  • Send new messages from sets Mail to automatically use the email address or email alias you choose from the pop-up menu for new messages.


  • Add a signature to your outbound mail allows you to append a message to the end of every mail that you create. For example, you might want to include your contact information.


Signatures that you set up on the iCloud website don’t synchronize with email signatures from Mail on the Mac or on your iOS devices, and vice versa.


To set Rules:

1) Click the Actions button, then choose Preferences.


2) Click the Rules tab

Mail rules run on the server and can automatically run actions on incoming messages. You set some criteria, and then an action to automatically occur when that criterion is met. Let’s say that I have a mail folder called Family. I can set up a rule so that all incoming email from my wife automatically gets routed to the Family folder.


3) Click the Add a Rule button.


4) In the resulting popover, set the If criterion and the Then action to be taken . You don’t have a lot of choices her; in the If section, you can trigger an action on the From, To, CC, or Subject fields. In the Then section, your choices are Move to Folder, Move to Trash, or Forward to a different email address.


5) Click Done.

The rule that you created appears in the Rules tab of Preferences.


The Rules ability of the iCloud website is fairly rudimentary; although you can set up multiple rules, you can’t set up multiple criteria or actions for a single rule, which makes it much less powerful than the Rules ability in Apple Mail, Gmail, and other systems.


To set Vacation preferences:

1) Click the Actions button, then choose Preferences.


2) Click the Vacation tab


3) If you want to send out a vacation message, select the Automatically reply to messages when they are received checkbox.


4) Enter a vacation message in the text field, then click Done.
