    I had my email set up before on iOS 4.3.3 and it worked fine. On Monday, it stopped refreshing and receiving emails, so today I decided to remove and add the account again.
    But now, I get this every time I use the correct settings:
    For some reason I can't get it to work now.
    Code:
    The IMAP server "p02-imap.mail.me.com" is not responding. Check your network connection and that you entered the correct information in the "Incoming Mail Server" field.
    I don't know what to do, and I need to use this email. :mad:

    I used these directions to get it to work before, and now they don't:

    Code:
    Step 1: Navigate to Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars>Add Account... and select "Other"
    
    Step 2: Select "Add Mail Account" and type in your iCloud info.
    
    Step 3: Under IMAP>Incoming Mail Server
    •Host name - p02-imap.mail.me.com
    •Username - Email excluding "@me.com"
    
    Step 4: Under IMAP>Outgoing Mail Server
    •Host name - smtp.me.com
    I even tried doing it in Windows Live Mail, and it says it can't connect to the server.
    Please help! :(

    You were warned not to use it for critical data, being a beta

    iCloud email is prone to stop working during beta, like i think it is at the moment, if you used it for important emails, then that was just daft.

    have you tried installing the iCloud control panel for windows? think it only syncs with MS Outlook, not windows live mail, but may be your only way.

    I found a fix, instead of p02-imap.mail.me.com it should now be p03-imap.mail.me.com
