Using iCloud email in Thunderbird
Okay, I've been struggling with setting iCloud email up in Thunderbird ever since iCloud was released. When I use IMAP server mail.me.com it connects about half the time. The other times I get an error message. I found an Apple support posting that said use imap.mail.me.com with login firstname.lastname@example.org. This form rejects all the time. What is the secret with using iCloud's IMAP server? Anyone using iCloud in Thunderbird successfully? I have to say I am so close just going back to Gmail it's ridiculous. I have about had it with Apple completely.

icloud and Thunderbird
Right now, it appears hopeless. I've tried various settings, re-naming of the outgoing server, and ports. No cigar. There is apparently silence on the Mozilla forum except for someone indicating that there was a posting on "Bugzilla," which I guess means begging someone to invent a work-around. I e-chatted with someone at Apple Tech Support and he said that iCloud does not support Thunderbird.
So it goes.

What I found here (https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0) posted by user "arrow7" seems a bit simpler:
imap.mail.me.com (ssl 993)
smtp.mail.me.com (StartTLS 587)
authentication: "normal password" in both cases
then make sure that IMAP folders are properly configured in the account settings... sent, draft, trash, junk, archive, ... i.e. that everything goes where it has to, exclusively to IMAP folders, and not anywhere else. Thunderbird allows you to tweak that very precisely, so do it.
edit: forgot to say, don't use Mozilla IMAP/SMTP detected settings for iCloud mail, this won't work, switch to manual config and do as I said.
just one thing, IDLE doesn't seem to be supported on iCloud servers right now, mails must be fetched every x minutes or manually.
