I cannot speak to the Nook, but it does work with the Kindle Fire HD 7". Set up like any e-mail account. I have several on the Kindle. A Road Runner, Gmail and the iCloud. It does it automatically. It asked for your password and sets up from their.

Thanks for your feedback... I figured out the issue. For some reason you can't use the extension @icloud.com, you have to you @me.com. Using @me.com allowed me to set it up automatically without inputting the IMAP & SMTP info. Strange, but at least my account has been added :-)

Ok, for anyone who's curious, I figured it out. The SMTP setting should read "mail.me.com" and the Security Type is "STARTTLS". So you are able to use the @icloud.com extension.
Unfortunately mail.me.com is not iCloud, it is MobileMe. The incoming server for iCloud is imap.mail.me.com (smtp.mail.me.com for outgoing), you should expect erratic service if you choose to use the old Mobile Me server
Here are the correct settings for iCloud email: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4864?viewlocale=en_US

Hi Csound1... The mail.me.com option is the only one that works for the Nook HD. So far, all my emails have been coming through and I can send out successfully. I tried several times to use the "imap.mail.me.com" and the "smtp.mail.me.com"... It just won't work on the Nook HD.

Are you letting the Nook set it up or are you manually entering the numbers yourself, I ask because a quick search of this forum will lead you to discover others who have done as you, some work, some don't, many work and then stop working.

I tried to allow it to setup manually and it forces me to select "pop" "imap" and I forgot the 3rd option. So I select "imap". The strange thing is this, if I use @me.com, it sets up automatically, but I don't use the @me.com extension. Using the @icloud.com extension, it's forces you to manually input TJ information.

It sets up automatically because it knows about Mobile Me, unfortunately that information is obsolete now, you must setup manually (If you had an older Mac you find the same behaviur, auto setup uses MobileMe settings, and thus is incorrect for iCloud.
Read the directions for your Nook carefully, you need to know how to enter the settings manually.
Also, go to the website, verify how you login there, use the same login for the Nook.
