Hi All,

  Recenlty I've been having intermittent problems with iCloud Mail and Safari on my iMac. 


  Mail - I keep getting " cannot be contacted on port 993" and cannot recieve email until I restart the Mail program then it all works, seems to happen overnight that authentication fails. I don't have any problems on multiple iOS devices, just OSX and recreating the account doesn't make any difference.


  Safari - I loved the feature of being able to see open tabs/bookmarks across all my devices - but since the mail problem started happening I've also lost the ability to see any iMac (OSX) open tabs on my iOS devices.  My iOS (iPad & iPhone) can see each other but they cannot see my OSX (iMac).


  Something strange going on with iCloud since the latest updates and introduction of the email address.  Anyone got any thoughts?



iMac 21.5 - 3.06Ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
