Enter in user library see this article macOS Sierra: Library folder

Delete the complete contents of folders Caches , Cookies , Saved application state into the trash , restart the Mac and empty the trash .

To work your I cloud mail account you must have to create a web mail address like gmail or any and Apple ID that are kept as same , open system preferences > iCloud account under your name Apple ID must be shown that you must be signed in with I cloud account .

In internet accounts > click on iCloud check all the boxes except back to my Mac and click on web mail account check all the boxes .
