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: john.smith123@me.com
Password: 'password'
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')
Password: 'password'
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
Port: 587
Require Sign In: (Ticked)
Username: john.smith123 (Dont add @me.com)
Password: 'password'

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

Yes, but I am almost sure that they have different servers and users have been divided into groups, this explains the weird "pxx-" prefix in the IMAP automatically asssgned by Lion.

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!

Hi

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....

1) Menu, new account, Other...
2) enter email address
3) enter passwork
4) select Manual setup

5) Protocol: IMAP (Incoming Mail Server) information:
6) email address should already be populated, enter if not
7) user name = email address, not including @me.com / @icloud.com
8) password should already be populated, enter if not
9) Server: imap.mail.me.com
10) Security Type: should be SSL
11) Port: 993, then hit NEXT

12) same as step #7
13) same as step #8
14) SMTP server: smtp.mail.me.com
15) Security Type: I had to use TLS (SSL would not work)
15) Port: 587, then hit NEXT

16) name the account whatever you want
17) chose a name for yourself, then hit FINISH.

18) Voilą, done

POP is not supported by iCloud.
