    I'm having trouble accessing mail on my iPhone, iPad and OS X. Anyone else having issues at the moment?

    I've been having problems since late evening time yesterday. I am able to send emails but not receive them. I can also not log into icloud via a web browser for mail only. I receive an error message about the server being down.

    I contacted the iCloud support team and they told me the mail servers were down for maintenance and it could be up to 24 hours.

    Would be nice if they would update the iCloud status page!

    Continuing problems with mail on iCloud

    I'm having problems, too. Can't connect through apps or even by logging on through iCloud.com (where all other features, such as calendar, seem to be working and syncing fine).

    I think it is not good service to have the mail servers down for 24 hours without notice. 30 minutes, maybe? But 24 hours is a catastrophic system failure in my opinion. Not just "maintenance".

    On the Support Page...

    iCloud: Mail & Notes - Users Affected: <1%

    Users may be unable to access Mail. Service is expected to be restored by 8pm PST today. All messages will be delivered at that time.

    All other services are online and fully operational.

    I just called Apple support and was told there is an "outage" and that they were working on it. The last report they had was five hours ago! Doesn't sound good.

    Mine is semi-down.

    I can see the From and Subject of new messages but the body either loads VERY slowly (like 5 minutes for an email) or never at all.

    That's on my iPhone. Logging into Mail at iCloud.com doesn't work at all.

    Mail is not working at all

    able to see the headers of new emails but not able to read any emails that were prior to 9:00am today. The Mac mail app will not load any new headers after 9, but the are loaded on the iPad and iPhone mail clients. According to the Mac I have 14 emails, the iPad and iPhone state 31.

    When I try to delete any of them nothing happens. When I delete the ones on the mac, they disappear, only to reappear if i restart the mail program.

    I'm at work. I can't access my email on the iPhone or through the browser service.

    On my phone, it just keeps saying 'connecting' indefinitely. Likewise, in the browser it just keeps trying to load the page but never shows my inbox or any other mobile me services.
