I am desperate to get iCloud email working on my Win 7/Outlook 2010 machine. I have iCloud setup on my MacBook Pro and iPad using mail, calendar and contacts. On the Windows machine, I used the iCloud control panel to create the mail account setup.
It used my new @.me.com account as the user (only the name, not the @me.com).
It used p02-imap.mail.me.com and P02-smtp.mail.me.com
Port 993 with SSL for sending and port 587 with TLS for sending.
The problem is with authenticating to the smtp server. It stops and asks for a password. I have tried every port/encription option and still no joy. It authenticates to the imap for getting messages.
I can login to iCloud's web app and use the MBP and iPad without an issue. It seems like hundreds of people are complaining about the same thing.
What is the ciorrect seetings for iCloud mail and why does the auto config fail?
Hi guys. I continued reading posts after answering this one, and some people solved the problem just changing the iCloud account password.
Change your password, and Outlook will ask for the last time for it.
I hope it helps!!!
