    Hi

    I have used xxxx@mac.com for a while. My wife want a new email address and .mac (mobileme) account. She absolutely does not want to use an @me.com address. It is too social networking 'all about me' self centred and not professional at all.

    Can new mobileme accounts use @mac.com like our old .mac accounts?

    Cheers
    :( Who dreamt up @me.com?? I though I didn't like it, like all is Macheads, but my wife not liking it! Who did they market test this with? A group of kids?

    I think it's just a matter of personal preference. I reactivated an old dot mac account to use with MobileMe - I did never and would never use the @mac.com email address, but actually like the @me.com address and am using it. I am a bit of a Apple fan I suppose, but am not a kid... Anyway, I'm sure that Apple have paid for a lot of market research on this - sorry it doesn't help you with your wish for @mac.com though:eek:
