Don't bother changing the server name, just remove the "@me.com" portion from your account name. All other setting can remain the same. This is safer than chaning the server name to an alias which Apple isn't suggesting you use.

I have the same problem
PC, win7, WLM (windows live mail), started in late Sept.
outgoing mail fails
incoming is fine.
On the apple "support" community (I say that sarcastically because there is no evidence apple is supporting anything here) there are several strings in progress now on this issue.
So far not apple nor anyone else has offered a solution that uniformily works.
I myself have tried everything offered by all the contributors and nothing has worked:
changes tried that failed:
1. changing smtp name by adding various p0#- to the address (e.g., p06-smtp.mail.me.com) >> (and that's a zero not a capital O)
2. changing the email user name to: (my user name)@me.com, tried (my user firstname.lastname@example.org)
3. somewhere someone suggested trying TLS instead of SSL but outgoing port 587 + SSL IS TLS
4. rechecked all settings against those recommended on the apple.com site multiple times and they are correctly entered - and they do not work.
multiple users having the same problem leads to only one conclusion - this is a system issue not an issue related to any one user - and if internet mail servers were blocking me.com to avoid sending spam then using apple's outgoing server wouldn't work on an apple device either - therefore the problem must be that apple has changed settings that have resulted in a block to windows protocols for windows based email programs.
BTW, I am able to send outgoing mail without any problem using my icloud account by using the icloud control panel on my pc (which sends via a web page rather then by using an email client).

I finally got icloud outgoing mail to work on WLM using the following:
hit "settings" button next to outgoing mail server:
hit the button "log on using"
do NOT check "log on using secure password authentication"
enter the password for your icloud account.
other settings per listing on the apple web site for PC email setup for icloud email addresses.

Thanks a bunch! This worked, but what a pain in the *** that this problem developed without cause and then trying to locate a solution Apple! Dislike!

Hey guys, p06 also worked for me. Note if you're using Windows 8 mail app you need to uncheck the SSL option for outgoing email. Thanks!

Thank you. This solved my problem of the SMTP server not sending mail.
I'm using Windows Outlook 2010, on Windows XP Service Pack 3, in a domain based office network using Windows Server 2003 (outdated but it still works for us).
