    The only way I can figure it out is to log into the iCloud website, go to mail, preferences, alias and create a new one.

    It now creates an alias with @icloud.com instead of @me.com. I want to actually CHANGE my @me.com address to @icloud.com and not just create an alias. I'll be just keeping it as @me if I can't convert it to @icloud.

    It's rather confusing, I wish Apple would provide some clarity.

    they are automatically combined. Your "me.com" account is also a "iCloud.com"

    I have been using my iCloud address without having to do anything, besides changing it in settings so people getting email from me see it as iCloud.

    I tried logging in with @icloud.com and sending mail to it but it's not working.

    It went active for me in iOS6 beta 2.

    I can log into Messages (mac), Facetime (mac), iCloud(mac) iCloud.com, iCloud(iPhone) and iMessages (iPhone) with a @iCloud.com version of my @me address.

    iTunes match (iPhone) and iTunes (Mac) revert me back to my @me address. It's all rather inconsistent.

    ----------

    You need to select which address you want to send from in the settings; iCloud or Me.

    Gotta bump this thread. I'm running into the same road block as krspkbl. I can't even edit my iCloud account name at all in the settings.

    I too want to keep the same alias, but just change @me to @icloud.
