Yes, definitely iOS devices affected. iPad can't send email either. iCloud System status posted in another thread says every thing OK.....but it is not. Any help -or- are a lot of us in this boat?

Bump......Oh well, guess I'm going to continue to use Gmail! Anyone else still having this issue?

Deleted icloud account and then re-added. Did not work.
Deleted again and then re-added again except used my icloud @me.com email address for my apple id. System was smart enough to automatically convert it to my @mac.com apple id and still did not work.
So the server knows the correct icloud email address associated with my apple id yet still rejects my apple id address.
Has anyone had this particular issue resolved?

After spending some quality time with a Senior Apple Tech we have found a solution. I would mention his name, but I am not sure if that is allowed. However, thanks a lot!
The solution was something I tried earlier. Why it did not work then, I do not know. Perhaps the server was just not playing nice.
So, on your iPhone/iPad.........
1) Goto Settings>iCloud
2) Delete account. When asked "What would you like to do with iCloud calendars....", click "Keep on My iPhone".
3) Goto Settings>iCloud
4) Re-add iCloud -BUT- delete the "firstname.lastname@example.org" that is listed by default in the "Apple ID" field
5) Type in the new iCloud "email@example.com" email address that you were assigned in the "Apple ID" field
6) Type in the password you normally use
7) Click "Sign In"
8) After it goes through the verification process, merge what you want to merge
The Senior Apple Tech recreated the process on my ipad and iphone. All test emails back and forth to worked. I just recreated the process again on my wifes phone and it worked.
Thanks again Senior Apple Tech

Did not work for me.
And, when I send an e-mail from my iPod then I get the same error: "The sender address (Apple ID) was rejected by the server".
Very odd. Doesn't seem to work.

I found a way to get my @me.com ID to work (but not the @iCloud.com ID).
Go to Settings > iCloud
Your apple ID should be the @me.com ID
Under the advanced > mail section, your email ID should be the @me.com ID
In the allow sending from section, enable the @me.com ID, disable the @icloud.com ID
Hope that works...
