I'm trying to set up my iCloud account.



I can sign in to confirm my AppleID and can sign in to both MobileMe and iCloud so that aspect of things seems to be OK, however when I try to set up the Mail section of iCloud it tells me that that name is already in use, it is in use, by me!




My ID is something along the lines of ''


I can log in using that ID but I can also log in using ''


Via the preferences panel in Lion I can log in to iCloud using '' and set up my Contacts, Calendars, Bookmarks, Photo Stream etc.


However when I try to 'Choose an iCloud email address' I get the message that 'This email address is already taken. Try picking a new one.



It is taken, I'm the one who has taken it, however some bug prevents me from using it.


Any thoughts?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
