Okay, I've been struggling with setting iCloud email up in Thunderbird ever since iCloud was released. When I use IMAP server mail.me.com it connects about half the time. The other times I get an error message. I found an Apple support posting that said use imap.mail.me.com with login firstname.lastname@example.org. This form rejects all the time. What is the secret with using iCloud's IMAP server? Anyone using iCloud in Thunderbird successfully? I have to say I am so close just going back to Gmail it's ridiculous. I have about had it with Apple completely.
