I just set up icloud on my mac and now my mail won't recognize my password. Formerly, on mobileme i had the main computer which was pre-intel so now I'm switching to my intel mac. Everything is fine on cloud, all the data is there, but on my computers (intel computer and also pre-intel) when I try to check my mail it keeps saying that it doesn't recognize the password. I get mail fine on my iphone, and when I log into icloud but not on my computers (pre-intel or intel).
I followed the steps outlined in [URL]to move my Snow Leopard's MobileMe mail account to an iCloud account in the Mail app (deleted the old MobileMe account from the sidebar and followed the steps to create a new one for [URL].¬†Before doing that, I had gone online and changed my very old AppleID's password so that it conformed to the new requirements.¬† I also set up the MobileMe in System Preferences to be using that new password.¬† It seems to be happy with the new setup/password.¬† ¬†
I can get my iCloud mail on my iPad and on my MBAir when I use Safari.¬† But the Mail app continues to loop, asking me to enter my password -- and then informing me that "The MobileMe IMAP server "imap.mail.me.com" rejected the password for user [URL]I compared my Mail settings for the new iCloud account to what's given in the instructions and cannot spot anything amiss.¬†

I have been trying to download Cloud 1.I put my Apple ID and Password in.It didn't take.I changed my password and it still didn't take.Also, when I tried to download mobile me, it wanted my 'member name and ID'.Is that separate? All I want to do, actually , is sink my contacts in Yahoo to gmail on safari.I was able to do that on Mail in Mac, but not on Safari.
When I switched to ICloud I thought my Apple ID and password would work for Apple store. It turns out they have a different Apple ID at the Apple store with a diferent password that I do not remember.¬† HOw can I make the ICloud Apple ID and password work for all other platforms?

I bought a used macbook air and cannot access icloud. i created a new profile and could do it there but not when I go back to my original one. Is this because the original owner used a different apple id to set up the machine?
Returned from vacation to a message that I need a stronger password for my Apple ID than the one I've used for years. I created a new password, which was fine for 4 days, but now iCloud again says my password is wrong. It's not. Apple has forgotten it, and I've had to create yet another one.
I don't know why but a recently I've been asked to enter my icloud password related to my iCloud e-Mail address.¬†stupidly, I've forgot what my password is. is there a chance to reset it somehow?¬†
To explain the situation a bit better and what I've tried already, here a short discription of the situation:¬†
- I do have a appleID that is called firstname.lastname@example.org the related password is appleID_Password1.
with this combination I also conduct my purchases in iTunes and the AppStore. But to rule this possibility already out: It doesn't let me access my iCloud eMail account in Apple Mail. Funny enough, though, when visiting iCloud.com this is the combination with which I log onto iCloud incl it's mail service within the web browser.¬†
- the iCloud eMail address for whose password I am looking is called something like email@example.com. I have implemented it into my Apple Mail program running on Mac OS X Lion. Since setting up the account i've never ever been asked to enter my password. But now, out of a sudden, I was. And, of course, I couldn't remember it anymore. Hence, I don't receive any eMails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org anymore on my mac.¬†
Can somebody tell me how to fix it, if it is not the password for my appleID??

I'm unable to log into my iCloud console on my mac (OSX Lion 10.7.4) - its giving error: 'unrecognized apple ID or password' and You can't sign in at this time'. Incredibly though, I can log into my iPhone, the iCloud's website and iTunes as well, using the same apple ID. I would like to keep my Mac, iPhone and iPad in sync with the iCloud system.
I have created a number of Apple i/d's that now seem make my records confused. I'm often forced to reset passwords; like today: I tried to log in to use my icloud email address and had to reset the password - again even though¬† I had used for my apple ID minutes before!!. This repeating problem has become a real headache and I want to kill off the old unused apple i/ds and start afresh so i can link my information etc over all my hardware.¬† can this be achieved if I present all my prior information for deletion?

I recently changed my apple ID password and now I can't log in to the icloud system preferences on my iMac or the App Store on my iMac. Everything else is fine with the new password; icloud.com, itunes, ipad, iphone, MacBook Air. Have tried creating a new user account but get the same messages which vary from "unrecognized user or password" to "problem communicating with icloud, try again later."
I have changed my apple ID username/email address online, and now all of my devices are asking for the password to my old account. I can't find the way to log in with my new username. Is there a way i can update my apple id on all of my different devices?
Why have the Mail servers seem to have forgotten my password, when iCloud and Apple servers have not?Username and password are the same for all). Why,when Apple had a much better system than Windows, does Apple tyr to be more and more like Windows: more complicated and less useful?

I want to hand over an old iBook G3 900MHz running MAC OSX 10.2.8 to my brother. I have a Powerbook G4, which I love. I've installed an Airport card as he was hoping to use it wirelessly however, it will not accept my routers password although I know it's right. Its a Netgear provided through SKY. Does the operating system need updating?
If I want to sign in to this message board, I can do so.¬† I can also sign in on my iPad to download updates, purchase new apps and songs, etc.¬† And I can sync my iPad to iTunes on my iMac.¬†But when I open iTunes on my iMac, it asks for my password and I can't sign in.¬† What is causing this problem with iTunes on my iMac repeatedly asking for my password when I open iTunes?¬†
This is very frustrating.¬† I am also worried that I won't be able to sync when my new iPad arrives March 16.
my GF and a glass of Wine. Cat hits wine and wine hits MBP. The Mac shut off instantly, we acted pretty quick and mopped up and turned upside down. I then took back off and over the course of the next 5 days I have stripped it down completely including the Key board and cleaned as best as I could. I've put it all back together and it starts up, a reassuring tone rings out, then apple sign appears with a loading bar beneath, this takes a while then it reaches the Lion log in page.It still recognizes me, or rather my name as the user but refuses my password which I know is correct.The keyboard isn't backlit but keys are typing something (can't see characters, just dots).¬†Screen brightness works.No back light on keys although this may be normal at this point, not sure.¬†
iBook is 800mhz, 512m with a 20g hd. The iBook boots to the login screen but won't accept the password. I have even tried older passwords just in case. I tried holding down the c while booting from the cd; sounds like the cdrom spins but again it boots to the login screen. I tried holding the Apple & S key to get to single user but it goes to the login screen. I tried holding the option key which brings up the start-up drives, but can't change to the fire wire drive because the password is unaccepted.
mobileme doesnt recognize my password in iphoto in my macbook pro, why does this happen? that is the same password for my iphone when i use it for the app store. i know the password is correct, it works everywhere else but in iphoto
