I'm trying to opposite thing most websites describes. I'm using GMail as my major app and iCloud account as addition to owned iPad. I'm trying to add iCloud (me.com) account to Gmail. But either I'm missing something or this is not possible.
I've sereached the net ot get iCloud / me.com account details. Then I followed usual way, I've been using to add my previous three external e-mail accounts, I'm checking via my Gmail. I thought, that adding fourth -- iCloud / me.com -- shouldn't bring any problems. Turned out, I was wrong.
I've added all account details (server, login, password, port, SSL etc.) into "Add new account" page. In response I got server error with following description:
Missing +OK response upon connecting to the server:

Whoa! Does it means, that Gmail uses non-standard headers when getting e-mail from external account or it is not sending something, it should send, and therefore getting e-mails from iCloud / me.com account in Gmail is... impossible?
