    Hi. I tried to find a thread about this but couldn't find anything.

    I use iCloud....but it's my xxxxx@yahoo.com and I never had mail on before.

    I turn mail on and it asks me to create an xxxxx@icloud.com email. So I do.

    How can I now get my xxxx@icloud.com email on my iPhone?

    Under the iCloud settings I now have mail turned on.

    Under mail, contacts and calendars I have iCloud and it shows mail.

    But messages only show up on the icloud.com website

    So your iCloud account doesn't show up in the Mail app at all? If so, have you tried to kill the Mail app and then relaunch it to see if that fixes it? Otherwise, you could also try restarting your phone to see if that works.

    It sounds like you have now created two iCloud accounts. One with xx@yahoo.com as the AppleID and the other with the new xx@icloud as the AppleID. The xx@yahoo.com iCloud account should have an @icloud.com email address associated with it and that is the one you want to use.

    I ended up deleting the xxx@yahoo.com iCloud account and then I just setup the xxx@yahoo.com iCloud account again and mail shows up now
