Since upgrading to iOS5 from my .mac/mobileme account, I am unable to access my email when I am at work.  I have asked our IT department if they have changed any settings at their end, and they have said they have changed nothing.  It always worked fine before, but now I get nothing, and it's the same situation on my iPhone 4.


Any ideas to why this is the case?


Many thanks!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    Have you actually migrated your MobileMe account at ? If so, then on Lion Macs you need to enter the account at System Prefences>iCloud, and on an iPhone follow these instructions:



    On any pre-Lion computers you will need to enter the email settings manually.

    Presumably at work you are connecting through their internet connection? Are you using one of their computers or your phone - if the latter presumably through their wifi?


    The difference with iCloud email from MobileMe is that it requires SSL. If you are using one of their computers, make sure it is correctly set up with SSL enabled. If you are using your iPhone and their wifi their firewall may be blocking SSL connections - you'll have to ask them.
