Grayed out Incoming Server reads "mail.example.com" when setting up a new iCloud account,  so can't change it to the right one. My .Mac mail no longer working after being away for a couple of weeks. Also, tried to set up a new Ipad for someone and the same thing happens: Grayed out Incoming Server address is unchangeable but it reads "p10. icloud.mail.com" or something.

 

Thoughts, anywone?

    The p10 number is one of those added by the system and appears to represent different geographical areas - it's quite normal.

     

    If you are having problems with the setup you should sign out in System Preferences (or Settings)>iCloud and sign back in again, emabling Mail in the checklist. This should set it up correctly. It's not designed to let you do this manually in the Mail application.

    Thanks Roger, this was an easy fix for something I spent 2 hours on!  Logging out of iCloud and signing back in again did the trick.  Isn't it always the simple answer?
