    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.

    Have you tried or are you speculating?

    You must specify an IMAP account, not an iCloud account in order to bypass the auto-assigned incoming server value.

    Correct, so you enter the iCloud account (which is an iMap account) manually.

    The correct server address is imap.mail.me.com, no number at all. Read Apples documentation

    I had the same problem today.

    My solution:

     

    1. -> Mail -> Preferences -> Accounts ->  - Delete iCloud Accound

    2. + Add Account

    3. Username xxxxxx@mac.com or @me.com or ... and password

    4. Check fails -> Continue

    5. Account Type: Change from iCloud to IMAP

    6. Use imap.mail.me.com for incomming

    7. Use smtp.mail.me.com for outgoing and activate authentication

     

    ... works fine

    The same problem showed up for me yesterday. I followed your "trail" and it worked.  The message on my screen  about "..you are about to delete..." when I selected to delete the account scared me last night.  Today I figured I had to try it anyway.  It looks like I didn't lose any messages since they repopulated from the server and didn't take long at that!

     

    Thanks

    This just started for me this morning.  Same p03-image.mail.me.com problem with no way to change the incoming mail server without deleting account and specifying it manually.  Using my iPad it works fine.
