    Hi

     

    Glad it worked for you, too. I've had all kinds of trouble with Mail and iCal since upgrading to iCloud, and this is the firt post I've found where stuff actually does what people claim it will.

     

    Whenever I see a reply like yours, it reminds me what a brilliant thing the interweb is!

    Shundra, you are a generous genius. Thanks so much for making this transition much easier.

    Will this process also work with Mail in Leopard?  I have an old Powerbook G4 that I still use for web surfing etc.  Would hate to lose Mail on that.

    You can use the same method in Leopard. You won't need to hold down the option key after the first page if you uncheck 'Automatically set up account' (this checkbox does not appear on Snow Leopard). There may be an extra step necessary: If you can't connect, go to Preferences>Accounts, select the account and click the 'Advanced' tab: set the port number to 993 if it isn't than already and make sure that 'Use SSL' is checked

    Roger,

    Your instructions worked flawlessly.  Took less time than the 4th Movement of Beethoven's 9th to set up both my PowerBook running Leopard and my MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard.

    Thank you so much for this - it worked a treat! After following another post and deleting my original @mac.com account, I then realised I didn't have the options that followed to reinstate the account. Thought I'd lost a very important folder of (business) emails. Thank god I found your post! Have been pretty p***ed off with Apple for forcing me onto iCloud / Lion (I'm going to install that on a secondary drive after reading about all the nightmares other users have had, and I'm happy with Snow Leopard), but tonight I can now relax. Thanks again.

    Helped for me perfectly, thank you so much! Interestingly, my old "Tiger" machines receives emails from me.com without any trouble, my iPhone does (with the old system) but the Air with 10.6.8 did not. Now I got all mac.com mails from the last days and I am very happy.

  • dotMe Level 1 Level 1

    the link 'Entering iCloud email settings manually in Snow Leopard or Leopard' does actually show 'smtp.me.com' under 'Account Summary' - very confusing!

    I don't know quite how that happened, but I've now corrected it.

    Thankyou - just double, double checking on behalf of any newcomer.
