Has anyone successfuly set up their Android phone to work with MobileMe/iCloud?

 

What were your settings?

 

I did search before I posted but none of those settings worked.

 

I would think this would be a straight forward process since it's pretty standardized.

    You'll need to put these settings (works only for email):

     

    MAP (Incoming Mail Server) information:

    • 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

    SMTP (outgoing mail server) information:

    • 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

    It keeps hanging up on the smtp part

    Don't understand it but these settings worked for SMTP:

     

    smtp.me.com

    Port: 587

    Security type: TLS

    Ditto, Ditto, I just followed the above and it finally worked!!  Thank you a million too!  But just to clarify, here is what I input.  I underlined the critical differences.

    • Server name: imap.mail.me.com
    • SSL Required: Yes
    • Port: 993
    • Username: if your address is:example@me.com (use "example", not the whole address)
    • Password: Your iCloud password

    SMTP (outgoing mail server) information:

    • Server name: smtp.me.com
    • TSL Required: Yes
    • Port: 587
    • SMTP Authentication Required: Yes
    • Username: if your address is: example@me.com (use "example", not the whole address)
    • Password: Your iCloud password

    After spending quite some time trying to get my T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II setup with iCloud mail, this is what finally worked. Thanks to everyone for the various bits that helped lead me in the right direction. For those who need lots of detail, I hope the below helps. Please don't ask me about any other specific Android phones as I'm not expert but thought someone out there could benefit from my experience.

     

     

    INCOMING SERVER SETTINGS

     

    User Name: username (do not enter @me,com or @mac.com)

    Password: (enter your password)

    IMAP server: imap.mail.me.com

    Security type: SSL

    Port: 993

    IMAP path prefix: p##- (you can find this by checking your account settings on your Mac. Mine was p03- so that's what I entered here)

     

    Press NEXT

     

    OUTGOING SERVER SETTINGS

    SMTP server: smtp.mail.me.com

    Security type: TLS

    Port: 587

    check the box next to "Require sign-in" if it's not already checked

    User name: username  (do not enter @me.com or @mac.com)

    Password (enter your password)

     

    Press NEXT

     

    Your phone will check the server settings and you should be able to see your email now.

    Thank you so much, the "do not enter @me.com" part was most helpful

    I have just moved to iCloud and I'm trying to set up my Mac e-mail account on my Samgsung Galaxy S2. I couldn't get past the INCOMING SERVER settings. The message "Setup could not finish" pops up when I press NEXT. Has anyone encountered this issue and resolved it? I'd appreciate some help.

    Managed to get this all set up however, Android only seems to allow you to send from your primary address and only reply from your primary address even if a mail was sent to one of the other addresses.

     

    Any ideas how to get around this as I have three addresses beneath my primary which I need to both send from and reply from.

    My mail was working fine on my Droid Bionic until about 12 days ago.....then nothing.  Hours spent on this stuff, it's stuck on the smtp......"unable to connnect to smtp.me.com"    I've tried all the settings mentioned about in the formats....can't get it to work.  darnit.

    I tried to send out an email even though I couldn't get it to work.  Says I have a failure in SSL library, usually a protocol error.   Anyone know how to fix this? 

  • 13. Re: Setting up e-mail for Android?

    If all else fails

     

    Try this. Go to your Mac Mail account via your browser at www.me.com

     

    Login as usual.

     

    Click the Preferences icon next to your Account Name right side of that window, then click Preferences.

     

    Select the General tab. "Forward my email to" ...

     

    Hope this helps...
