    Team, I running Jelly Bean on My Galaxy Nexus GSM, the only thing I did was to:

     

    1. Open up default email  client

    2. type in my complete icloud email (ex.  yourname@me.com)

    3. my password

    4. And that was it, didn't have to configue anything

     

    Done!!  Works perfectly

    Can I also use .mac rather than .me?

    Right, I managed to get all my emails up and running BUT only as .me.

     

    When I send emails they come from username.me.com, rather than username.mac.com. But that's not what I want. I need them to show as .mac NOT .me.

     

    Is there a work around to this?

    Razr Maxx outgoing default mail icloud

    When I send an email from my phone the message goes to the outbox and won't send.

    I get an "Authentification not Supported" message.

    Or I get "Sign in Failed"

    What is the problem?

    If I remove the entire account from the phone and set it back up it sometimes will work.

    I am getting this same error, over night it quit working.  I've tried a handful of combinations of servers, etc., deleted and re-added, nothing seems to get it working!

    The outgoing message goes to an outbox on the phone and then gets stalled there.  Today I tried to send an email at 0800.  The message finally was sent at 1500 hr.  Don't know what to do.

    If you ever need to configure Apple iCloud email on your Android device then you may find the following settings of use:-

    I am using the standard Email client on my Android Sony Xperia S

    Open the default Email client on your Android device.

    Open the settings and click Add Account

    Type in your Email address (eg jamesP@me.com)

    Type in your normal Email Password

    click on next and select Manual Setup

    choose IMAP

    Enter your Apple email server (I found this by using iCloud to add my Apple Email account to Outlook on my PC and then checking the Email Account Server settings in Outlook) it will be similar p05-map.mail.me.com

    Set the port to 993

    Set the Security Type to SSL/TLS

    Leave the IMAP Path Prefix

    Click on Next

    set the SMTP server as smtp.me.com

    Set the Port to 587

    Set the Security Type to STARTTLS

    Tick  Require Sign in and enter your username without the @me.com (eg. JamesP) and your password

    Save settings and you should be done.

    Hello All,

     

    I am using a Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.2 Jellybean on it.

    All I did was to open up the default email client and provided my username (I cloud email I'd),password and that's it.

     

    I was able to setup my email by signing in without any more configuration settings

     

    Its working perfectly fine.

    It doesn't work at all while other mail provider work. Email IS NO LONGER an optional fancy and Apple Computer policy is unacceptable. Is far beyond ethics, moral and dignity. Just another little sign of USA attempting directly or throught the industrial policy of its comapanies to really loose all support from people worldwide

    After being an Apple's faithful customer since the Apple ][ and buying about 45 machines and additional gear with my own money, and, as a University professor promoting Apple machines to hundred of students, I will move to LInux .... well done Apple Computer. This time you lost a client maybe it doesn't matter but watch out: maybe you invented smartphones, but do you remember Sony's Beta videorecorders? Sony did exactly what you are trying to do with your phones and pods. The result was that Beta went out as they did not want to licence it, and VHS took over even if the quality was worse ....

    iCloud email is a standard Imap account, it will work on anything, including Android phones. You have failed to set it up correctly

    EXACTLY.

     

    You failed to set it up correctly.

     

    It's very easy to set up Apple email on Android.  Go back a few pages and read the directions.

    Please read before you post, I have no problem with iCloud mail on an Android phone, but the poster I was replying to does.

     

    Try to improve your aim when posting.

    That is EXACTLY who I was reffering to.  You couldn't catch that? 

     

    Stop getting your panties in a wad.
