Android MobileMe/iCloud Email Settings
Here is how to set up your new Galaxy S3 or other android device to work in compliance with the MobileMe or iCloud Email system. I have tested this on 'Icecream Sandwhich' so it should work on other android platforms and the upcoming 'Jelly bean' for android.
Add a new email account.
Now here are the settings for incoming mail.
Email Address: email@example.com
Send email from this account by default: (Unticked)
Show password: (Unticked)
Now press manual set up...
Select iMap account
Username: john.smith123 (Do not add '@me.com')
iMap Server: imap.me.com
Security type: SSL
Port: (Dont change- should say '993')
iMap Prefix: (Do not change)
Now Press 'Next'
Now set up outgoing..
SMTP Server: smtp.me.com
Security Type: None
Require Sign In: (Ticked)
Username: john.smith123 (Dont add @me.com)
If you found this to be of use please post a response to this thread so i know it has worked, or if you have any problems ask away.
Peace, Be Good

On my WebOS HP (Palm) Pre 3, I have used this settings till yesterday:
now, as of July, 5th, 8 am GMT, the outgoing server no lomger works!

This also explains why different users with the same configuration device/OS have to use diffent setting.
For instance my Palm gets email through "mail.me.com", Apple suggests imap.mail.me.com and you succeded with a weird imap.me.com, Apple WTH!
By the way till yesterday I could send, today I cannot.
Apple, we appreciate iCloud, but this seems a mess to me!

Sorry to revive a thread over 6months old but I have entered all the settings as suggested but I keep getting a error saying 'my outgoing server does not support authentication, please verify settings'
Have the settings changed in the last 6 months? I might try smtp.icloud.com and see if that works....
