    I just sign up to Mobile Me for the first time and something strange just happened regarding my mail accounts.

    I used to have my regular e-mail and my brand new .me account. But for some reason now, I have a "Mobile Me" account just added that has my e-mail using a .mac.

    Why would I ever need both and where did this come from?

    Same thing in the "Settings" section too when I go to my "Mail,Contacts,Calendars" section. Under "accounts" it now there too.

    It shows:

    1. My regular e-mail
    2. My .me account
    3. A .mac account (With the same name as my .me account)
    4. Add Account

    I know that the .mac account gets me to the same place but why would I need both and should I just delete the .mac account?

    Thanks a bunch in advance

    Sounds like a glitch. I would delete both and re-add the @me.com, as your new account isn't likely to work with @mac.com.
