    Insider Preview Microsoft Mail iCloud Setup Problem


    I'm finally trying to switch over to Microsoft Mail provided with the Insider Preview 15058. I've got 3 out of 4 accounts switched over but I'm unable to set up my Apple iCloud email, contacts, and calendar. I tried using my iTunes id and password, and also tried with 2 aliases (and iTunes password). I need to get all my contacts in particular or else Microsoft Mail will be useless to me. I tried using the iCloud setup options and the Advanced IMAP4 setup options. None are working. Any ideas?

    Do you have 2-factor authentication on your Apple account? If so then you require an app specific password for Windows 10/Microsoft mail.

    Now that you mention it, I do have 2-factor authentication. I logged out and back in to my iCloud account and it did prompt me for a 6-digit code, which was sent to my iPhone, which did allow me to log-in after entering the code. So the problem appears that Microsoft Mail does not know what to do with the authentication and when trying to sync, eventually comes up with the "Your password is out of date" message. Do you know specifically howto set up iCloud with the 2-factorauthentication?

    That's "Your iCloud settings are out of date"....

    The 'Your iCloud settings are out of date' is indicative that you require an app specific password rather than your Apple ID password - it was the same when I set up my Apple email on Windows 10 mail, constantly getting that error message until I added the app specific password.
    As you get a passcode whenever you access your ID then you have enabled 2FA.
    Information here: Two-factor authentication for Apple ID - Apple Support
    Log into your account & look for security, there you'll be able to create a password to enter into MS Mail.

    It works! It works! So happy. I set up up an app-specific password for Microsoft Mail in my iCloud account under "Manage". It bypasses the 2-factor authentication! I've got my calendar and contacts. Thank you for the help!

    Hello, I do not have two factor authentication turned on, yet I have been getting this same message in windows 10 calendar and it won't sync my iCloud calendar. It used to work. Any other possibilities?

    You could try deleting the account & recreating it - unless you have already tried that.
