I CAN, however, send and receive e-mails from my online www.icloud.com account.
When eM Client attempts to send/receive, I get a dialog box asking for my username and password. I believe my username is my full e-mail address (not just the part before @icloud.com?); my password is that app-specific password that eM Client generated for me when I first signed up. I’ve tried variations on my username (full e-mail and first part only) - to no effect.
The specific error message I get is:
The authentication failed due to the following reason: "The input is not a valid Base-64 string as it contains a non-base 64 character, more than two padding characters, or an illegal character among the … I can’t read the rest.
However, I don’t know if that message has anything to do with what may be broken.
The message asks if I want to open my account settings, but of course when I get there, I can’t get the User Name/Password combination to work - if fails three or four tries and then stops before the send/receive cycles again.
