    It's been way slow since they started the webmail thingy. Sometimes I wait 12 hours for an email. (hiss)

    It was pretty zippy before webmail. I wonder if this is because of Apple's servers getting too much traffic and can't handle it, or because OS X Server just isn't powerful enough. Pure speculation here. But I'm curious.

    It was bad last night. I was wondering why the forums seemed so "dead". It was because I wasn't getting any e-mails through mac dot-com for a few hours. When it did finally start to work, I got like 15 e-mails (Mac Forums Mailers) at once.

    That's the first time that I've had a problem w/mac.com. They do have their beta webmail out though, so maybe that was causing some problems?

    Alternative

    Well, its still in beta, I wouldn't rely on it totally yet or anything. if you need to get your mail in a pinch, mail2web.com works pretty well with the mac.com address.

    I got no emails last night, and then a flurry (31) this morning.

    At least I don't have the connection error problem anymore, but this is still annoying.

    ARRRRRGH!!!

    Still happening. Took mac.com HOURS to get me my mail. I don't expect this kind of service from Apple. Hopefully they fix it soon.

    How's a man supposed to keep up without Macrumors mailers?

    Freakin' Apple.

    You must be all over the place on macrumors. …And without mailers? Maybe your more crazy than I thought. ;)

    I tried it without mailers today-- it takes more time for me and I miss some discussions that I was a part of.

    But I guess it's all preference. Makes it harder to jump the gun on some people.
