I've been having this weird problem with iCloud for a while.

If I go to, I can login just fine, and everything works (Contacts, Calendars, etc.), EXCEPT the Mail app. Whenever I click the Mail Icon, I get this error:

enter image description here

When I click "Report to Apple" it gives a more detailed log, ending with this message:

Sat, 24 Dec 2011 04:13:07 GMT:  ERROR: CoreMail handled error 13002 before exiting Mail

Anybody know how to fix this?

By the way, whenever I try to login to Mail in the Mac OS X or the iPhone mail, I get The iCloud IMAP server “” rejected the password for user “myusernamehere” , even though the password is correct.

It seems it was a temporary problem, as it now appears fixed.

Not quite fixed yet because I'm getting the same error – user17556 Jan 21 '12 at 20:54
@Phillip: you're not the first to post that here. In my experience iCloud email is just too flaky for actual use right now, I stopped using iCloud for email. – houbysoft Jan 21 '12 at 23:07
