I somehow ended up with an Apple email address.

How can I use my '@me.com' email in my email client (Evolution in Debian)?

I'm a bit confused, do you actually want to use this email account? It sounds like you got it unwantedly. –  Gerry Oct 2 '12 at 19:32

You can find the IMAP settings to use for your mail client at this support article.

Incoming mail server

Server name: imap.mail.me.com
SSL Required: Yes
Port: 993
Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
Password: Your iCloud password

Outgoing mail server

Server name: smtp.mail.me.com
SSL Required: Yes
Port: 587
SMTP Authentication Required: Yes
Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
Password: Your iCloud password

+1 solved my problem although the support url is broken. –  hhh Oct 2 '12 at 20:43

Works for me, though theres a long lasting bug with Apple's support site. Trying again usually suffices. –  Gerry Oct 2 '12 at 21:45
