    When I got my new MB I signed up for the free trial on .Mac, I don't really want all the services they offer as it doesn't appeal to me. But I do want to keep my @mac.com email address, Will they delete my @mac.com email address ofter the free trial period?


    Thanks!

    I believe so.
    The @mac e-mail address is one of the perks of having a .Mac account

    I think you can still access your e-mail, but you can't send anything.

    once your trial ends you can still use your .mac name for an iChat user name...it will always exist, but all other services will end.

    Here's a better question. I haven't even used my .mac e-mail address yet for anything, yet I am already getting more junkmail than i get on my very used and old hotmail address. Where did they get my address?

    Most likely from the address book of a friend.

    You may have a username that was previously owned by someone else.

    I've had .Mac for over 3 years and almost never get spam. My Gmail account, which I've had for just a couple of months, gets about 10 spam emails per day. Totally random crap.
