I'm trying to send mail using my iCloud email address; however, I'm getting the following error message:


The SMTP server “” rejected the

password for user “[username_here]”


Enter your password again or cancel.


I have configured according to the instructions at and am using the correct password. Does anyone know if there's something that I missed or do I just need to upgrade to Lion? Thank you for any help you can provide.

Mail, Mac OS X (10.6.8), MacBook Pro 7,1
