    I turned on Apple's two-step verification tonight and immediately noticed that my iCloud account could no longer connect to the server via Outlook 2011 on my MBP. Once I turned the verification off, I got the green connection light again.

    Is there a step I am missing to make this work with two-step on, or am I out of luck?

    You need to generate an app specific password.

    Log in to https://appleid.apple.com
    Click Password & Security
    Click Generate App-Specific Password

    Edit: Then once you have the app specific password, enter that into Outlook.

    Thank you for the help. Thus far, that seems to have solved the problem.
