    I truly don't know how but I no longer have an alias ( something@me.com) that I use a lot I have ( something@icloud.com ) but mail to the me.com alias bounces. Any suggestions on how to retrieve/restore that alias?

    If you login to icloud.com and go to Mail then click the cog at the bottom left to look at account settings... then look in the Account tab... do you see the alias in that tab and is it activated.

    And I find this annoying. I had an alias associated with my .Mac account from many years ago. Time passes, we're all .me now - but I can't recreate that alias because it was once used with a .Mac account. I called Apple and the response was a very polite "I'm sorry, but there's nothing I can do".

    (and yes, we're all .icloud now, and I still can't use the alias I created with my (still active) .mac appleid)

    My account tab shows "something@icloud.com" not "something@me.com" and there is no way to add a me.com alias
