Is anyone else on this server having problems connecting? I'm getting very slow response which either times out or eventually connects. My other account on P07 connects immediately.

 

Of course the iCloud status reports everything is fine on Apple's main page, which obviously is not the case :\

 

Really wish there was a way to report issues with iCloud.


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

    Yup! Same issue. I've been having this on and off all weekend.

     

    The latest version is it won't retain my password. I've been asked to enter it twice in the last hour all to no avail. Eventually iCloud vomits forth a few emails only to go back into hybernation.

     

    Very frustrating.

    For the password prompt issues, just right click the mail icon in your dock and select quit or just ensure Mail is selected in the forground and press Command + Q to quit mail. Relaunch Mail and the password prompts should stop, at least for a while. That has been on ongoing problem since Lion beta and I don't know if they will ever fix it. Putting in your password is a waste of time as it will simply continue to prompt over and over.

     

    Mine finally started working again somewhat about 5 minutes ago.

     

    Really wish they would fix these mail quirks. I agree the password prompt issue is also VERY irritating.

    Does your password consist of 8 or more characters with 1 or more uppercase letters, 1 or more numbers and no special characters?

    Yes, it does.

    use imap.mail.me.com (incoming) and smtp.mail.me.com (outgoing) see if that helps.

    I would love to use another server but in my Preferences>Account> Incoming Mail Server is set to P03-imap.mail.me.com and its grayed out. It cannot be changed.

     

    Apparently iCloud set that at some point because it wasn't set that way when I first set up the account.

     

    Any ideas?

    Enter the account manually then.

    Oh, if it were that simple!

     

    When I tried to enter the account manually after putting in my password it automatically assigned me to the same P03 server. I wasn't even given the chance to manually enter the server.

    That is because you are still using the auto setup (which I suggested you avoid)

    OK, I don't undestand the procedure then.

     

    Please point me to a support document on how to manually enter an iCloud account.

    In Mail>Preferences>Accounts, click the plus sign for a new account, at the next screen enter your username, press the option key (the 'create' command will change to 'continue', press continue, you are now in manual mode.

    It's unlikely manual mode will help. It will still detect teh original mail cluster and set it to P03.

     

    I've already tried re-homing my account elsewhere. it doesn't seem to help much one way or the other except when the actual mail server/cluster is down. Today's issue is more of a slow/no response but sporadic.
