Receiving email is just not working reliably across all devices ... IOS and OSX.

It has been a disaster all day today.

Constantly asking for password.  Unable to connect.  Up and down.

I called support, and they said they didn't hear of any problems.

    Have you not seen/followed the massive icloud email fail thread(s).


    If not, welcome to the fiasco known as icloud!


    Many of us have been dealing with this since october 2011, since icloud inception...migration from mobileme.

    There was a iCloud outage earlier with mail. 

    iCloud: Mail & Notes - 04/17/2012 14:18-14:52 PDT - Users Affected: <1%

    04/17/2012 15:07 PDT

    Users may have been unable to access iCloud mail. Normal service has been restored.

    Apple is reporting normal service.  Normal service it is NOT.  I am constantly getting the Checking for Email icon. And now have the offine tilde icon on my MACBook Pro.

    Same boat here.  All mail applications hang on Checking for Mail...

    Tried deleting and reloading iCloud on devices with no luck. My iPhone badge is showing 30 new emails in iCloud but there aren't any emails in the inbox when I go in on my iPhone. Mail on my Mac is showing everything has been read but it keeps disconnecting from iCloud.


    Can we get some Apple expert info here?

    My wife's iCloud email is exeriencing Chris' issues.  My account however is working fine.  Strange.

  • StephenH83 Level 1 Level 1

    Mine is doing the same thing. Been  going on for at least 12 hours. Really would love to know when or how it will be resolved.

    Whereas yesterday I couldn't even log into iCloud on the web, or open any emails.  Today I can log into the web, but STILL NO NEW EMAIL IS COMING THROUGH!  In addition, there are no bounce-backs from my account, so all messages that are going directly there are getting lost in space. If this was RIM, all **** would be breaking lose, but with Apple, this is somehow tolerable?

  • JennLH81 Level 1 Level 1

    Experiencing the same problem STILL...It's been going on for almost 24 hours and still no information or support from Apple!

  • cdp34 Level 1 Level 1

    I have two accounts set up. One is working fine, but my main one is not receiving email at all. Very strange how it's only affecting one but not the other.

  • Chamar Level 4 Level 4

    Yes it does seem rather strange.


    There are many other threads reporting the same problems.  I've been using iCloud mail (not my primary id) for the last couple of days with no problems sending or receiving mail using my iMacs and IOS devices.

  • Cdreed Level 1 Level 1

    I just spoke with Apple Support.  ICloud is indeed having problems.  This morning I have been receiving messages from iCloud that my disk space is full on the cloud, which BTW is bogus! Incoming emailand other services is affected for 10% of users, not <1% as it says on Web Site.  Said they are working feverishly to solve the problems.  Must be big problem becasue this has been going on for over 24 hours.
