    I am one of those persons who still has an email account with a @mac.com address. And like many others I have found this whole transitional iCloud very complicated in regards to services offered etc.

    But my main concern is my email address as it is well established withthe people I work with and the thought of changing my email address is going to be a real pain.

    Does anyone know what will happen to the old dot mac accounts? And are they being killed off soon?

    Early in beta it was hinted that old me.com and mac.com emails would continue over.

    me.com/move should eventually, when it goes live, allow you to port it over to the iCloud system.

    Until June next year, Gallery/iDisk/etc will be accessible from me.com
    Mail/Calendar/Contacts and all new stuff will be accessible from icloud.com.

    You will also be upgraded to 25GB from the normal 5GB new accounts get.


    https://www.me.com/ ->
    transition link at bottom https://www.apple.com/mobileme/transition.html ->
    Damn that was hard to find/verify.

    Simply move your MobileMe account over to iCloud and you keep your email address.

    http://www.me.com/move not sure if it's open to the public yet.
