Apple mail error: Account already exists


I have set up my email addresses using Apple mail problem, that I an account could add, because the error message always came, that the Account should already exist (even though he of course did not).

The problem

My iCloud account was set as my same email address “already exists” E-Mail Adresse: .

The solution

I've added address email in Apple mail to your iCloud account , Thus there was no duplicate E-Mail addresses and I could my Use address, without getting the error message during Setup.

Instructions for Apple Mail

  • Mail (top right) -> Accounts
  • Select iCloud account links
  • Click on mail in the box to the right
  • a-@icloud.com find address and confirm
  • finished

Then the email can be added to mailbox without the obstructive error message.

  1. Don't understand the explanation at all. Is ,,bar@icloud.com” a fancy address. And why not more twice the first address by entering another.

  3. Thought I had it already, Conflict of an Apple ID address using a setup of an email account under the same email.

    Past that was times, in my Mac Book by 2011 It's always still so only recently it won't do. Thanks to all your post now well.

  4. With the iPad that work address without @icloud.com, I could easily activate my t-online E-mail account. Why is that different Pro on a Mac?

  5. Moin, me that was something different.

    -> Settings
    -> iCloud
    -> iCloud account log out
    -> Then go back to settings
    -> Internet accounts
    -> Add account
    -> Finally again iCloud enable
