After moving my MobileMe account to iCloud, I am now getting an error message in mail that states:


The MobileMe IMAP server “” rejected the password for user “xxxxxxx”


It keeps popping up a window asking me to enter my password, but won't accept my password.


I googled this error and see a bunch of threads here and other places about problems with IMAP passwords and this same error message back in 2008/2009.  But I've never seen this error before, and since it happed just after the transition to iCloud, I suspect it is realted.


Any suggestions?
