Woe is MobileMe


It’s easy to ignore the handful of people moaning about a lack of MobileMe email access but, if you’re one of the unlucky one percent like me, it’s a definite problem.

I would imagine most of the MobileMe users unable to login to their mail accounts don’t have the platform to shout about their problem like I do so, for all of you out there in the same boat, here it is:


Besides the obvious lack of communication, the other issue with MobileMe Mail accounts being down is the constant bouncing of the Mail icon in my dock and persistent messages telling me that the server rejected my request. I’ve now had to disable my .Me accounts in Mail to keep my sanity.

This latest hiccup following the initial issues with Push, activations, transition, syncing etc etc and Apple’s grovelling emails and trial extensions have done little to impress new users or longtime .Mac subscribers, including me. This should be the online service from Apple we’ve all been waiting for. Sadly it looks like the wait will continue.

Why not take things to the next level and let Apple know how you feel?

Hopefully this will be sorted “ASAP” as Apple claims or else the 1% of mail-less MobileMe’rs and I will be left humming to the tune of Dire Straits’ classic Money For Nothing “I want my MobileMeeeeeee (email to work)”.
