    After upgrading to Lion GM, I found that wound't work any longer. I deleted the account and add my MobileMe account as a new account, but it constantly tells me that the MobileMe server is null.

    Does anyone have this issue? I can't use MobileMe mail at all in my new system now.:(

    First: Is your account an iCloud account (did you create it from the iCloud preference pane, or have you been a MobileMe user for a while now?) If so, did you update to the latest version of the iCloud beta for Lion, which is necessary for the GM build?

    If that doesn't apply to you, or you are on the latest iCloud beta and still have no luck, try manually configuring an IMAP account as follows:

    Incoming server:, SSL enabled, port 993
    Outgoing server:, SSL enabled, port 587

    Both incoming and outgoing require authentication, so you should have "authenticate" selected for the outgoing as well.

    If the issue persists and it's critical to get mail now, install any 3rd party mail client, such as Thunderbird, using those IMAP settings.

    My MobileMe email isn't working either at home or on the road an that's on two separate computers.

    Since I've been on vacation I haven't worried to much about it, I'll work on it in a few days but very strange indeed.

    Also having Apple Remote Desktop problems even with the latest updates. Oh well, what would a new OS be without some broken software.
