    Marten responded by giving me a link to a workaround app needed because of a bug in Android.  I installed the app and hopefully will not have the problem anymore.  Thanks again.

    Yup, there's a few of them round. One of the disadvantages of an open system (like Android) is that phone manufacturers can make changes to suit their needs, so apps don't always work on all Android phones. Good developers supply patches (workaround apps) to combat this. You may have to do it again in the future but Marten is on the ball.

    The answer to syncing both calendar and contacts has been posted in this thread earlier.

    This works and it's easy.

    imap.mail.me.com

    SSL (strict check) 993

    login: ONLY PUT IN THE INFORMATION TO THE LEFT OF THE @ SIGN! So if you are abc@icloud.com your login will be "abc"

    Password

     

    smtp.mail.me.com

    STARTTLS (strict check) 587

    login: Same as above, if you email is "abc@icloud.com" then only put in "abc"

    Password

     

    Then everything should work fine.

    That's email, on one phone (a phone that along with its Android version you don't even bother to identify)

     

    It may or not work on other phones, and you forgot about the rest of iCloud.

    Hi I have an HTC one and was using iCloud on it sine I got it back in April. Today it suddenly stopped working. I can receive mail but can't send any. I have tried the above solutions but it keeps saying my username or password is incorrect but it's not. Please help

    Make sure in the outgoing server settings that your user name does NOT include @me.com.  This problem happened to me today - it had been working fine for months but suddenly stopped working.  Once I removed the @me.com from my username it started to work again.

    Guys,

     

    Spanner in the works? I have a new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet running Android 4.2.2 that won't set up my mac.com/me.com mail account if its life depended on it. I've tried every possible combination of suggestions on these discussion pages and nothing works. I mainly can't get past the incoming mail settings page that reports 'cannot connect to server'. All my settings and password formats are correct. I even changed my Apple ID password as suggested by some to no avail.

     

    My Samsung Galaxy Note phone running Android 4.1.2 had no problem at all before and after I changed the password and set up automatically from just the mac.com address and password. No further settings were needed.

     

    Android 4.2.2 bugs perhaps?

     

    Anyone have suggestions?

     

    Martin.

    .....ps....from what I've read on line, it appears to be Android 4.2.2 on Samsung issue. I downloaded the maildroid app form the Play Store and the standard settings work perfectly when entered manaully (auto set up didn't work). Not only that but having the 'delete on device' or on 'device and server' option I remember from the heady days of Blackberry is a bonus.

     

    Ah well, I'm sure it will be dealt with by Samsung in due course but for now at least the device gets my Mac mail.

    ALL,

     

    Galaxy Note 3 Settings. UK Spec on Three Mobile (www.three.co.uk)

     

    I have been able to set this up this morning successfully.

     

    As per apples documentation followed exactly as written, with the exception of the highlighted line which relates top OUT GOING SMTP SETTINGS. I set this to TLS. ;

     

    Server information

    IMAP (Incoming Mail Server) information:

    • Server name: imap.mail.me.com
    • SSL Required: Yes
    • Port: 993
    • Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
    • Password: Your iCloud password

    SMTP (outgoing mail server) information:

    • Server name: smtp.mail.me.com
    • SSL Required: Yes - I HAD TO SET THIS TO TLS
    • Port: 587
    • SMTP Authentication Required: Yes
    • Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
    • Password: Your iCloud password

    Note: If you receive errors using SSL, try using TLS instead. SSL is required for both IMAP and SMTP connection with iCloud. POP is not supported by iCloud.

    Hi,

     

    Sorry but these are the same settings mentioned in earlier posts and still won't work on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 running Android 4.2.2. The incoming server settings are sent before the outgoing server settings page is loaded up and returns an error message saying "Authentication failed" despite the entered data being scrupulously correct. If by chance with fiddling I get to the outgoing server settings page and enter the info, those correct settings create outgoing mail but I'm still left with no incoming mail as the data entered is constantly rejected.

     

    In the meantime Maildroid works a treat using the same settings rejected by the on board Samsung mail app.

     

    Any ideas?

     

    Martin.

    Martin,

     

    I am running Andriod 4.3 and these are the settings that worked for me.
