Setting up iCloud @me account in Mail

Posted:
in Mac Software edited June 2015
Anyone know how to set this up? I created my free @me.com email address on my iPhone, it works fine. I can send from Mail but receive is not working at all. Anyone know how we are supposed to set this up? iCloud is leaving me with a lot of questions so far.

    In Mail, click Preferences... Click on Accounts, click on the + sign at the bottom. Enter your details, Mail will recognise the @me account and set up all the rest.



    If you are still having problems with Mail after this, you'll probably have to go through Apple Support pages eg. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2296



    Sometimes you may have to check the ports aren't blocked/slow due to your router or ISP. You can get information on the ports Mobile Me uses from something like: https://support.apple.com/kb/HT1625



    FWIW.



    I take it you're using iOS 5 beta?

    I thought iCloud was not operational yet. I'm wondering though what will happen to iDisk when the changeover takes effect. And will iCloud work with OS Leopard

    Yeah the typical mail setup doesn't work because it points to the current MobileMe server. I guess they are in the process of porting over to iCloud and should just be patient. I'll keep Gmailing for now. Glad to hear they may actually have a web interface after all. Wasn't too keen on them removing that feature.



    I am running the iOS 5 beta. Pretty darn solid for a beta. Still trying to figure out the wireless syncing though. Is it supposed to do it locally or just a cloud sync?

    Your mail address might. Nothing else will.

    Locally every time you plug it in.
