    Does anyone know why you cant change your apple ID email address to a iCloud.com domain? My Gmail account has been overrun with spam and I cant find a sufficient email address. Upon further review, I decide that icloud is going to be my next email domain.(I don't like yahoo or outlook.com).

    Why can't I change my Apple id to and icloud.com domain? I am trying to switch all of my important stuff over now so that I can continue to get my important emails while I decide which to switch over or which to leave to the spam zombies. Does anyone know if there is a way to switch what email my receipts go to?

    Unfortunately, Apple doesn't let you use your iCloud email address as your AppleID unless you create a new account using that email address. I believe it is for security reasons.
