Your MacBook must be running a pretty old Mac OS X. iCloud is only compatible with OS X 10.7.2 or later; however, you can set up Mail on all the computers. To set up the iCloud mail on the MacBook, see > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5330

Here are the email settings for iCloud:
Ideally, you should update your computers to the minimum version of OS X that iCloud supports - OS X 10.7.2 to avoid these setup issues.

Thanks Julian. I am running OS 10.5.8 on the MacBook. I have Mail on it -- that's worked OK in the past, before the disappearance of MobileMe. So that's likely to be the problem? With the MacBook, when I am out roaming, I also have problems logging in to Mail2Web -- and that used to be OK too. Presumably Apple wants me to chuck out my faithful MacBook and get a shiny new one?!!!

Thank you -- but now I am a bit confused, since that link tells me that the instructions relate only to 10.6 or later versions of OS. Is it possible to upgrade the MacBook to 10.6.8, which is the version I have on the main computer? It has the 2 GHz Intel core 2 Duo processor....

Ah -- thanks for that. Any thoughts on why I have problems in logging in to Mail2Web and accessing my mail when I am away from home with the MacBook? The Mail2Web people tell me that my settings are all OK, and they are mystified.........

Roger Wilmut from these forums has put together some instructions for setting up iCloud email on Snow Leopard (10.6), Leopard (10.5) and Tiger (10.4) here:
That should get you going with email without any upgrading.
