Setting Up Apple Email Account

This is relevant if you have 2 factor authentication enabled on your Apple account.
 
Using app-specific passwords
App-specific passwords allow you to sign into your account securely when you use third-party apps with your Apple ID.
 
App-specific passwords are passwords for your Apple ID that let you sign into your account and securely access the information you store in iCloud from a third-party app. For example, use app-specific passwords with mail, contacts, and calendar services not provided by Apple. App-specific passwords maintain a high level of security and help ensure your Apple ID password won’t be collected or stored by any third-party apps you use.
 
To generate and use app-specific passwords, your Apple ID must be protected with two-factor authentication.
 
How to generate an app-specific password
 
  • Sign into your Apple ID account page.
  • In the Security section, click Generate Password below App-Specific Passwords.
  • Follow the steps on your screen.
After you generate your app-specific password, enter or paste it into the password field of the app as you would normally.
