    Same here I can receive, but not send. The error message reads;
    "The connection to the outgoing server "" failed. Additional Outgoing Mail Servers can be configured in Settings > Mail, contacts, Calendars."
    I upgraded to iOS5 last night, joined iCloud and liked the idea of a address so signed up. I have never had a MobileMe account. I have and iPad2.
    I want to use my new address it's way cool and doesn't get spam (yet!) :apple:

    Same problem here, I can receive (iCloud) emails fine but I can't send them from my mac ( It gives an error with the SMTP server. (which I can't see its configuration anywhere).

    Any advice is welcome.

    Opposite problem here. I can send, albeit painfully slow, but I don't seem to receive any messages

    Update - the messages did eventually show up on my .me account - just took a really long time. Maybe performance will be better once everyone is finished hamming Apple's servers with software updates.

    iCloud email is now working for me. I set up a new account yesterday and was able to send but not receive. Whoever said that the servers needed to catch up was correct.
