    You should be able to find them in Mail. Pick a/your email account and right click then choose Get Account Info. On the Mailbox Behaviors tab, there is an option to "Show notes in inbox". You should also see a folder for notes below the mailbox folders.

    As StrudelTurnover noted, please remember to post your computer specs next time you ask a software question [many people keep them in their signature]. The answer to your questions depends on which OS you're using, assuming you're using iOS 5.

    10.7 (Lion): Go to Mail. The notes will show up in the inbox.

    10.8 (Mountain Lion): Go to Notes[on installing the OS, Apple put it in your dock].

    If you're using an earlier Mac OS or not "Notes" then you're going to struggle.

    They would be found in Mail on Lion, with a yellow notepad icon and normally in a silly font (Comic Sans?).

    Ah, good to know that's where they're supposed to be. In my case they aren't. I just now re-checked the Sync Notes box in iTunes and it quickly loaded 1 of the 5 on my device. It still can't see any notes stored on iCloud, despite the fact Mail is exactly what I use to view my iCloud mail. :confused:

    No wonder my Notes Knowhow is limited. :rolleyes:

    Ok there, after another five minutes of tapping and clicking various sync buttons they've all loaded.
    Joy. *closes Mail*
