I have been having a problem with my .mac account for email since this morning. When I try to send or received email it says at port 993 timed out. I have never had any issues before and my fiancee who also has a mac and is on the home network is also having the same error msg. I go to and don't see any error msgs listed for I assumed at first it had to do with the Apple event this morning. Is anyone else having this problem? If not, is there anything wrong I could be doing to get this error msg?

Can't get my .Mac mail through Entourage.

Works fine on web and iPhone. ;)

Your .Mac account will expire in 28 days. Bastards know what a hassle it is to change email addresses.
