    Mail is a part of OS X, it is a dedicated email program that can handle POP, IMAP, and Exchange services. You can use it for your gmail and other accounts. If you want a dot mac account (bellevue@mac.com) you need to sign up for that here:
    http://mac.com

    The @mac.com email addresses are part of the dot-mac suite of services. It's $99 a year, and the various pros and cons of the service can easily be found debated throughout these forums ad nauseum.

    Did you join or did you do the free trial? Is your native language in the pull down list?

    Once you get in (which you will), buy a license off of eBay if you want to join. Just search "dotmac" and you will find them. Get it from a highly rated seller and you will get it at a good discount.
