    Tried differnt combanations of pXX.imap, for incoming none work


    Apple tech support are useless after 1 hour run around i gave up, mean while im unable to get my mothers mail configured on OS 10.5 Mac Book, imap is the only option as its no able to run Lion due to age, this is crazy.


    I even work in IT configuring mail servers/exchange etc etc - now I know why im NOT an apple fan !


    Ive also changed her icloud password and still does not work, any help would be great.


    I can log into icloud no problems from iphone or supported web browser

    The method is described here:


    Entering iCloud email settings manually in Snow Leopard or Leopard


    Please note the extra step for Leopard described in the last picture.

    Thats exactly the settings I have and still no good..

    Also does not want to work from my Windows 7 / Outlook 2007 configured

    Are we sure imap is offically supported for icloud connections ?

    I had the same problem for 3 days, but today... I've had account which has difference between icloud e-mail and ID. I try to fill password field with id's password and it's happened! My icloud mailbox is working!



    Good luck! May my story will help somebody.

    Indeed, this p0x- server prefix seems to be an issue for me as well. I'm running a Lenovo Thinkpad T410 Windows 10 64-bit with Outlook 2016 (32-bit). After installing the iCloud for Windows PC app I could receive emails and sync calender on p01 but couldn't send via the smtp server. Re-installing or logging out and in again did nothing! Interestingly, I noticed Apple support pages for setting up mail on Outlook (pre-iCloud app) used the address without a p0x- prefix. So I went into account settings in Outlook, removed the p01- from the smtp mail server (I left the imap server with p01- prefix), and all emails in outbox were sent :-)


    Hope this helps other users!

    I also went into the Security section of my Apple ID and generated an app specific password, and used that instead of my normal email password. I didn't have to do this on my desktop after the Windows 10 upgrade, but for some reason I did on the laptop!
