Does anyone know if it's possible to setup an iCloud email account on Nook HD?  I've read the IMAP instructions provided by Apple and the issue begins when I input the SMTP info.  I use Security Type "SSL/TLS" (which these are the two that you can use per Apple's instructions).  When I select that Security Type, it changes the Port from 587 to 465.  I then receive the error message "Couldn't open connection to server".  Even if I change the Port back to 587, I receive an error.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you.

    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.

    Ok, for anyone who's curious, I figured it out. The SMTP  setting should read "" and the Security Type is "STARTTLS". So you are able to use the extension.

    Unfortunately is not iCloud, it is MobileMe.  The incoming server for iCloud is ( 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:

    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.

    It sets up automatically because it knows about Mobile Me, unfortunately that information is obsolete now, you must setup manually (If you had an older Mac you find the same behaviur, auto setup uses MobileMe settings, and thus is incorrect for iCloud.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.
