Icloud problems with os2
Hope everyone's enjoying os2! I'm having problems with getting iCloud mail to work with os2, it says "saving and verifying settings" and does nothing else.
I've used the exact settings as instructed on here: iCloud: Mail server information with no success. Anyone else having problems with iCloud and their PlayBook?

I got my icloud to show up with
IMAP Server: imap.mail.me.com
SMTP Server: smtp.mail.me.com
But in the email client when I click a message the email does not display. Just a white screen.
Seems to be my only problem with os2 so far.

I deleted my icloud account and re-did it and it worked fine in normal (not advanced) mode. But after I got icloud working I got knocked off of my gmail account. And so it goes...
All is good again. Don't know what happened with gmail but it is working now. I think the email issues are more of a server traffic thing than any real issue with os2.

I've managed to get my iCloud inbox to show in messages, but none of my folders are there...
Contacts seem to work fine.
Can't get calendars to work for the life of me, I've tried a million different settings.
Anyone managed to get their iCloud calendars, or mail folders to sync over?

I've managed to get iCloud mail working, but no folders and emails to not sync both ways (if I send an email from the playbook it won't appear in the sent items on the iPhone or on icloud.com)
I have the same issue with my yahoo. Clearly Playbook OS 2.0 is not working with IMAP accounts, and is effectively turning them into POP accounts.
What are the settings for getting your iCloud contacts working? I've had no luck getting the iCloud calendars on there either

I have contacts working and if I change something on my mac it changes on the Playbook.
BUT if I change something on the Playbook it deletes that entry from the Address Book on the mac.
And no luck getting calendar to sync

Thanks, have got iCloud contacts working now so that's something. Must just remember not to edit the on the Playbook!
Still can't get the calendars to sync over using CalDav.
No idea how the Playbook is managing to set these IMAP accounts up to work as POP accounts...!

the old MobileMe service allowed CalDav but if you have migrated to iCloud you won't be able to anymore.
I have the exact same problems with IMAP and iCloud not showing the IMAP folders etc.
One other thing i noticed is that messages in OS2.0 doesn't cache the inbox messages content so if you go offline e.g. flight mode you can't read any of your mails apart from the last few days.
This reminds me of some mail clients from 10 years ago.

It's a shame the calendars don't sync, and they can't even be shared to gmail accounts from what I can tell. I'd be happy with read only if I could even get that working somehow...
Was thinking maybe create a yahoo account and share to that from iCloud, but it's midnight here in Australia and I'm tired and can't be bothered right now. Might try tomorrow.

Messages also aren't being deleted
Another iCloud issue. If you read an email on the Playbook and then click the Trashcan to delete it, then get home and open Apple Mail, the message is marked read, but its still there. I have to twice delete every message every day. This is untenable. My patience with the Playbook has run out after waiting so long for this update and then having something as simple as iMAP not being properly implemented.

I scrapped iCloud and moved my contacts and calendar to Hotmail. Works perfectly.
I also sync my Hotmail email and that works great too. If Apple is going to make it difficult for me to use another non-Apple device, I may have to consider a non-Apple phone next time around.
