    Yep, but what is the point of 60+ days free if the service is down, or at best slow? (see my tread/rant i placed for my issues!):)

    Even Gmail has occasional outages when they are doing something behind the scenes. It's annoying, but as long as it doesn't last too long, it's to be expected from any email service.

    Mine is working right now, is yours back?

    But at least Gmail is free. I can accept that from a free service, but not a paid service like MM (as if that is the only problem with MM).

    The Exchange server at work has outages every so often, too. All email services do. If it happens when they are doing maintenance, at it's at odd times in the middle of the night or very early morning, I can live with that. You cannot expect email servers to be up and functioning perfectly 100% of the time. No software is that stable.

    As for MobileMe's other problems, this topic doesn't have anything to do with those. This was specific to email. If you are using this service only for the email, you wasted your money.

    While that's true, this is not during the night or scheduled.

    If a company plans to take a service offline, it should tell users in advance.
