Locked out of my iCloud ac­count

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

I have a late 2006 iMac run­ning OS X 10.7.5. Its only is­sue is that my iCloud mail ac­count will not set up on it any more. Set­ting it up in Mail re­ports ‘iCloud IMAP server “p03-imap.mail. me.com” is not re­spond­ing’. If I turn on Mail & Notes in iCloud’s set­tings, it soon unchecks it­self. The iMac is fine with my other email ac­counts, and the iCloud ac­count works on other Macs, iPads and iPhones. Dom Hur­ley First try sign­ing out of iCloud in its Sys­tem Pref­er­ences pane and then sign in again. If that doesn’t fix things, make sure you don’t have an old Mo­bileMe ac­count in the Mail, Con­tacts & Ac­counts pref­er­ences pane. If this uses the same ad­dress as your iCloud ac­count, it can cause prob­lems. Still no good? Re­move the iCloud ac­count. OS X will warn that the iCloud data will be re­moved from your Mac. The copy in iCloud will be re­stored when you add the ac­count again. If that doesn’t work, delete ~/Li­brary/Pref­er­ences/ com.ap­ple.sys­tem­pref­er­ences.plist

An old Mo­bileMe ac­count can cause prob­lems with an iCloud ac­count with the same ad­dress.
