    i went to check my email through and it kept asking for/rejecting my password...

    so i checked my webmail and i got a message that .mac was getting updated...

    Back features?

    Mine was down too, but it's back up now, and either I haven't been paying attention, or some of the new features are brand new as of this latest "outage"...New Home Page features, including the ability to edit your Home Page on a Windows PC. Cool, I can finally edit my Home Page from work!

    its back up and the .mac homepage has a totally different visual style. the navigation has only been moderately changed from what i can tell so far.

    #5 does this to me ALL the time. It's not .mac that's rejecting my password..because the web interface works fine.

    Seems to be a bug in

    .Mac made some backup 2.02 or something like iCard site with address book compatibility, new home page themes, etc. and a new connection with norton including discount 20% and free parental software.

    I have had issues with mail recently, but have mostly been resolved by just wating 30 min. to check my email again. From what it seems is they had many issues like this and they are supposedly updating the software on their servers, etc. and that is supposedly why so many problems...we will see I guess, but most of my problems have gone away, except for yesterday when they were updating everything...mail app. asked me for one time, but I tried back in 10- min. and it was fine and didn't ask for password. It also seems like this always happens with the main account and not any additional accounts.

    This happens to me in spurts, sometimes several a day, others once a week. I don't understand the reasoning behind it. If I were using .mac Mail as my primary email, I would be upset that potentially urgent messages would not be delivered.

    i've been having issues with it today and it's seriously irritating the bejesus out of me. i have never had any problems using Mail on my powerbook, but when i'm at work trying to just check my e-mail through IE on the PC here at work, i'm getting bumped off. why do i pay $99 per year for a mail account i have trouble getting to? i've never had any problems with the hotmail account i've had for years, and had been slowly trying to phase it out once i got the .mac address. makes me wonder if i should keep trying that.

    /rant. just having a bad day at work and not being able to check my e-mail is just one more thing... ugh. :mad:
