    I've searched the forums, google, and everywhere else, but I cannot, for the life of me, find how to set up my MobileMe email address with iAlertU.

    There's 6 text fields. They are below.
    1. Email to
    2. Email from
    3. Mail server
    4. Port
    5. Mail server username
    6. Mail server password

    Below the mail server option is a tick box that says "use SSL authentication".

    Thinking it would be fairly easy to set up, I put my email address in both the email to and from fields. I put "mail.me.com" for the mail server, 993 for the port. I typed in my Me username and password, and ticked "use SSL authentication". When the alarm is triggered, I don't get an email.

    Did I set up something wrong, or is this a bug?

    Can confirm after much fiddling and not being able to send test email, turning OFF SSL & using port 587 & turning off firewall in System Preferences works perfectly!

    1. youremailname@me.com
    2. youremailname@me.com
    3. smtp.me.com
    4. 587
    5. youremailname
    6. yourpassword

    I am just finding your response now, and it appears that all I had to change was the port and turn SSL off - I left my firewall on and it makes no difference. Thanks!
