    I found this set up here:

    http://chrisbowler.com/journal/conf...-use-icloud-email-with-different-sending-addr


    Can anyone confirm that this still works? I have my own domain and email server but my provider currently is still stuck with POP3 - but I'm otherwise happy with them and would like to avoid moving to a different company.

    Is it possible to do this as described without access to a Mac? I'd only have the iPhone 5 and various Windows PCs...

    Currently, I'm just forwarding my emails from the server to my blackberry.net address which then pushes it out to my BB. Outgoing address however is my own. Based on the description above I should be able to (sort of) do the same thing with an iPhone 5 if I make the switch next week. And no, I will not start using gmail or anything like that.

    This works over a year Now for me. I've been forwarding my gmail to iCloud, and having my send as address use the Gmail SMTP.
