Hi, I'm trying to update settings in Mail after changing my password. I try to save settings but it won't let me. It says I can't do that without an incoming server but the problem is that field is inaccessible. How can I change that?

It is not completely clear, but this is for an iCloud email account, correct? I am also assuming you are using either Lion or Mountain Lion for the Mac OS.

I believe you need to delete the account and then re-create the account with the correct password. Since iCloud accounts are basically 100% server based, you will not lose anything...when you re-create the account it will retrieve everything from the server.
