Not cheap, but now that apple have increased the 'idisk' online space you get with this service it is worth it. It is well integrated with the Mac OS X software (especially Tiger onwards) and really helps you get the most out of iLife. However, the main reason I bought it was for backups. Having online backups via this service is more convenient & reliable for me than relying on getting a DVD writer. I've enjoyed my membership and will probably renew, especially if I invest in Mac OS X Leopard and the new version of iLife. Keep at it Apple!

I bought this just before the mobileme launch as it was promised to be a good service... push, seamless integration, etc.

However it has been anything but. Apple had to admit that the service wasn't push at all.. far from being seamless you have to keep changing ports in mail.app to find out what works (and as I write this it's deleting outgoing email silently so I have no working email).

Reliability is none existant. It's losing both incoming and outgoing email - that's when the servers are up.

Avoid. Use gmail instead.

MobileMe is an excellent idea that has been very poorly implemented. On launch the service was down for days, now there is sporadic access to e-mail for a large number of users. Apple claim 1%, but it seems so much more reading the forums. It worked for me flawlessly for three days, hence the 1*

I've suscribed to .mac one year ago. At the last upgrade before "mobileme" we've been forced to stop to use our family five OS9 Apple ibooks and B&W. Fair enough as they were old (but perfectly ok for our family use and bad for our plannet to dump them ).

3 month ago I've bought a second-hand iMac with OSX 10.3.9 for my wife to have an access to this 1st new .mac version by replacing her beloved ibook (orange shell). Great ! or sort of:

About 2 weeks ago we've been forced to "upgrade" our .mac to this "mobileme" thing without anyone asking if we wanted this "upgrade " in the first place ! this new "mobileme" email doesn't work on My wife "new" iMac with a system (OS 10.3.9) only 3 years old ! it is a disgrace.

So are we going to be forced to buy a brand new Apple computer to be able to use our email on a .mac account we already paid for ??? I am afraid yes.

In Europe were we're living it is unlawfull to:
1/ breach contracts (.mac)
2/ force people to buy what they do not want: Mobile Me, OS 10.5 or a new Apple computer.

As a 20 years old Apple good customer and fan I am very upset by the way Apple is treating us and I am sure I am not the only one.

And "oups" I forgot: my .mac account is supposed to be renewned in 6 days, WHERE ARE THE 30 DAYS FREE EXTENSION APPLE PROMISED ???

I WANT MY .MAC BACK !
I'VE PAID GOOD MONEY FOR IT AND I DON'T WANT THIS "IMMOBILISE ME" THING !

If necessary I will go to court to have my customer rights back ! and I hope some of other customers will do the same if Apple doesn't scale back. If there is a class action filed somewhere against Apple, just let me know, THANKS. This is the only support I will need from now on.
