    Hi Jonathan,

     

    Do not delete the old account yet.

     

    I understand .mac mail will still come through. Do not delete the old account yet.

     

    You cannot use .mac or MobileMe as type of Account, you have to choose IMAP when setting up, otherwise Mail is hard coded to change imap.mail.me.com to mail.me.com & smtp.mail.me.com to smtp.me.com, no matter what you try to enter.

     

    iCloud Mail setup, do not choose .mac or MobileMe as type, but choose IMAP...

     

    On second step where it asks "Description", it has to be a unique name, but you can still use your email address.

     

    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

    Port: 587

    SMTP Authentication Required: Yes

    Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)

    Password: Your iCloud password
