Hi there, recently my brothers computer drive failed so I offered to fix it up. He didn't have things backed up but I was able to get his data safely off onto a external drive. I reinstalled mountain lion, updated everything and started transferring all his data over. However I am having trouble with mail. I copied and replaced the files in library/mail and library/application support/mail. However I can't seem to get the addresses working. @mac & @me. I tried deleting the accounts and readding them within mail which I would have thought would automatically configure the servers but no luck. He gave me his password so I know I'm doing that right.  The incoming server has no info and I done know how I can edit that. Any thoughts on this problem. Thanks

    Snow leopard does not support iCloud services so you will need to enter the account manually (it will work, it just won't auto-setup)


    Use these settings


    iCloud Imap Settings


    And here is how to get into 'Manual' setup mode.

    If you have a current @mac address use it but FYI this@mac, this@me and this@icloud are the same account, go to the same inbox and use the same server.
