March 2013 I am having trouble receiving mail on icloud account both with macbook air OS Lion 10.8.2 and iphone5 both completely up to date.
On Macbook in Mail after getting the warning triangle and "unable to connect" at Advanced tab my authentication says "apple token" rather than "password" and I am reluctant to change that even though the apple trouble shoot says this should read "password". Does anyone else use "apple token" here?
On my iphone5 all I get at icloud mail is "Cannot get mail - the connection to the server failed".
It seems strange that both have stopped. Of course apple are not posting any problems in my area.
I can use safari to log on to icloud and retrieve mail that way.
Does anyone else have similar problems today 13 into 14 March 2013?
