I reset my Apple ID (@me.com - Only have ONE account) as Apple asked me to update my information with a more strong password. I can login just fine into iCloud mail from the web and check, see my emails but as soon as I launch the Mail app this window keeps popping up over and over telling me that my password was rejected for user by the iCloud IMAP server. I have removed iCloud from my Mac and add it all back without any complains or issues but as soon as I launch the Mail application under my @me.com account this window pops-up. I don't know what else to do and so far I haven't been able to solved the problem. Any ideas? My machine is a 2011 MBP with OS Lion.

My Mail Application configurations under Incoming Mail Server shows: p01-imap-mail.me.com and Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): iCloud (iCloud).

Had the same issue. Went into my could preferences (preferences panel) It told me my account was suspended for security reasons. Had to reset PW and then all worked again.

It should be in the format p01-imap.mail.me.com, it looks like your missing the 'mail' part.

Thanks ioi for your input. Mine says p01-imap-mail.me.com. It gets automatically populated when iCloud under the Mac/Settings gets configured and the Mail client selected. –  Elias Feb 22 '12 at 21:08
    
@Elias — Hmmm... You might want to try generating a new TLS Certificate in Keychain. –  l'L'l Feb 23 '12 at 7:07
    
How do I go about doing that? The last thing I just tried was re-installing Lion to see if that will help correct the problem and no luck there either. This is the most bizarre thing I have seen and all because I updated the password! :( –  Elias Feb 23 '12 at 15:50
    
I could not get this corrected so I made an appointment with my local Apple store and the Genius guy was able to helped me. He basically deleted a bunch of files, psalmists and keychains. Things moved with Lion so they are not that easy to find though. I'm glad I have my email account working back again as expected. –  Elias Mar 10 '12 at 21:31
