    I keep getting this message:
    "This Mac can't connect to iCloud because of a problem with abresq@aol.com. Open iCloud preferences to fix this problem." That "iCloud preferences" doesn't exactly lead you by the hand but I got into AOL there and re-entered my password -- there didn't seem to be anything else available to do. But I'm still getting that message. Any help much appreciated -- thanks.

    I have the screenshot jpg but I'm not sure how to get it into a post in this forum since there's no "attachment" facility. Dragging it and pasting it both failed. Any hints, or give me your email and I'll email it.

    Just beside the Post Reply button is a button "Upload a File".

    I am guessing that abresq@aol.com is your AppleID? Perhaps it just needs a password. Try going to your iCloud prefs and re-entering your password.

    I tried that a number of times. Never seemed to make a dent.
