Hi all -


On my Windows 7 laptop I set-up the iCloud control panel and activated Outlook for it.


However, each time I open Outlook it says my password is incorrect! I know it's not because the SMTP server does not reject the password, just the iMap one, and mail immediately appears in my mail on my iMac sent through the SMTP in Outlook.


I changed my password after reading a suggestion on this forum, and now both SMTP and iMap reject the password!


This is obviously an Apple issue and how is it fixed?

Windows 7, Outlook 2010, Asus G75 laptop

    The initial symptons suggested an error in the iMap configuration (wrong port or security will produce the Bad Password error) now you've futzed with it I have no idea. Remove the account and start again. Outlook works fine with iCloud (any mail client does) so it is your settings that are incorrect, do you have the correct settings for reference?

    How on earth could my settings be incorrect the iCloud panel is the one which entered them? I've removed and re-added the account several times already...


    ...This is not an issue with something I've did... It makes no sense. The password is correct, it works on my phone/iMac/ Even with the default settings it's not working. This screams a server problem or similar.

    Have it your way then, Good Luck.

    iCloud password requirements are not secret, they are posted here on a daily basis and have been among the iCloud website info since the beginning.


    But you were so insistent that 'settings are correct' and 'password not incorrect' that I made the assumption that you knew of what you said.
