    Hi,
    I am going away from gmail on my ipad2....too many gremlins.

    Am I making a mistake considering icloud ? What is the support like ?

    The other option is Telstra Bigpond.

    What comment please from members who are using these.

    Thank you, Barry

    Have been using iCloud since the MobileMe days and haven't had a single issue. Works flawlessly as far as I can tell.

    Same here and no complaints. There have been a couple brief outages, but Gmail and other providers have had the same issue.

    I've been using it since the .Mac days (around 2005), I've not got any complaints with it.
    Maybe only a few outages since I started using it, well that I've noticed anyway.

    I've been using iCLoud email since it's .mac incarnation and the few outages I've seen have been no worse than any other larger provider.

    Is Telstra your ISP? If so, what happens when you switch ISPs? I like the fact that iCloud doesn't depend on what ISP you have.



    But all mail providers including gmail has had outages, so I'd say the outages are not really an issue.

    Yeah I didn't mean this as a bad thing, its good when you only notice a couple of outages over a period of around 8 years.

    iCloud is great! It sets up with one switch on any device in iCloud Settings and also offers IMAP for regular email clients. Best of all it isn't going to disappear anytime soon.

    I have had the happen with iCloud and other email providers also. I have an iCloud alias account I have never once used (I just wanted to grab the name) and I got a couple spams sent to it.

    I don't believe Apple leaked your email. I think spammers just sling out a bajillion emails to @icloud.com with random or dictionary words and you get hit this way. I reported the message to spam@icloud.com and they stopped.
