Apple has posted a support document outlining a number of recent changes made to its MobileMe subscription service. Among the more significant changes are the ability to maintain rich text formatting when replying to or forwarding messages, the ability for iPhone and iPod touch users to search all messages (including those stored in the MobileMe "cloud"), and the ability to merge contacts and calendars during first sync with an iPhone or iPod touch.
me.com toolbar
- Help is now accessible directly from the toolbar

Mail
- Forwarding or replying to HTML (rich text) messages maintains the message’s original formatting instead of converting it to plain text
- Unread message count is displayed next to inbox and each folder
- Resolves an issue where an email alias may not appear correctly in Mac OS X Mail
- On an iPhone or iPod touch, a user can search all messages including those stored on the Mobileme "cloud" (server). Search in the From, To, and Subject fields is supported (iPhone OS 3.0 required)

Gallery
- iPhone 3GS users can publish videos to a Gallery album
- If no Gallery albums exist, an album is automatically created when publishing a photo or video from iPhone (iPhone OS 3.0 is required)

iDisk
- Uploading to a Public folder with a web browser correctly shows completion status
- Resolves an issue where an email address may not be recognized as valid when using file sharing

Account
- Resolves an issue preventing the setup of some personal domains for iWeb hosting
- Resolves an issue preventing some expired accounts from being converted to Family Pack sub-accounts
- Active accounts with no upgrades can be converted to Family Pack sub-accounts

Push Contacts and Push Calendar
Note: iPhone OS 3.0 is required for these improvements.
- Option to merge existing contacts and calendars on first sync from iPhone/iPod touch
- Deleting a MobileMe account or turning off contact and calendar sync on iPhone/iPod touch allows users to keep a copy of the data on the device
- iPhone contacts that sync with MobileMe maintain ring tone associations

Hopefully the ringtone fix works!!

Very frustrating if you have many custom ringtones assigned to
different contacts and they go to default in sync.

Heh, for $60 a year (amazon.com price) I find MobileMe more than worth it with the included feature set.

+1.

The Apple Store tried to sell me a one year extension for "$30 off!" when I got the iphone recently. I said, "I can still get it for less than that at Amazon." The guy said, "Yeah I know but we have to ask." HA!

They need to add where you can change the fonts color, size, etc. This is very basic on other webmail. Come on Apple, you can do it.

I'm waiting for the ability to change the default sort, right now the default is when the message entered the folder (and goes back to that everytime you log back in), i.e. if you move a message in/out of a folder it goes to the front of the list...pretty lame. Still happy with the HTLM replying!

I'm just waiting on them letting me use my own domain name with email and web.

As soon as they do that they have a sale

Has the iDisk App made it's way into the store yet?

No, it's not out yet.

I'm not sure what the iPhone 3GS line was about. I've been able to publish 3GS movies to MobileMe since launch day.

It would be nice if we could choose what type of MobileMe gallery we want our 3GS movies to go into to (Photos or Movies). I can't figure out a way to get my 3GS movies to show up on my Apple TV without syncing them with iTunes or manually publishing them to a MobileMe movie gallery. Currently, they publish from the phone to a MobileMe photo gallery for some unknown reason.

Can they PLEASE make the iDisk faster. Personal web space is cheaper and more plentiful, but I went with MobileMe because it's integration is so convenient, I just wish iDisk was usable.

The replying and forwarding formatting is a welcome addition to the web interface.

It would really be nice to see MobileMe's web version and the iPhone interface handle moving Junk mail to the Junk folder like it does in Mail on my Mac.

Yeh but here in Spain it is 79.00 euros ($110.79) and for $39.00 I can get my OWN domain, with 20Gb web space unlimited mail accounts, unlimited traffic etc. etc. etc..... :mad:

It's worth it for me just for the exchange-like features like push e-mail, calendar, address book, bookmarks, etc. All the other features are just extra. However, I do think they should increase the storage up to 100GB or so simply because storage is so cheap.

But I will say before MobileMe, I was paying some $150+ per year just for exchange e-mail and calendar. Not sure what you would pay now for hosted exchange services, but it's fairly expensive for even one user.

iDisk is awfully slow, I admit.

Maybe it's my imagination, though, but I swear transferring files via iDisk is faster if I do it via me.com, rather than through Finder. Does it seem faster that way for anyone else?

It is painfully slow. It's been painfully slow since it was introduced in 2000 as part of the iTools suite.

Maybe it's just WebDAV or Apple's implementation of it.
