    Hi All :)
    I'm a newbie in the Mac world as I got my MacBook Pro just a couple of weeks ago as an emergency device for editing, but as you may guess I've fallen for it completely now.
    As per-subject, I was wondering if subscribing to MobileMe is the only way to get a @mac.com mail address. Do you guys know more about this?

    Thank you!

    Only if you were a .Mac user before the switch to .MobileMe

    Those who purchased after the switch can only have .me

    Follow the links in this info on an iChat account, my best friend just bought a Mac and just signed up for an iChat account and he is listed as @mac.com, he just signed up a little over a week ago.

    Hi, I too have both me.com and mac.com as I signed up before the change over. Does anyone know how long mac.com will remain as an address? Have apple indicated that it will for ever or will they expect everyone to move over within a period of time. Just curious.

    Thanks

    I believe it may be a while if they ever decide to retire the @mac

    I have both, but definitely find the @mac to be more powerful.

    this @mac adress is valid only thru mac messanger?

    The thread you responded to is over a year old, so it is outdated. If you don't have a .mac address now, you won't ever. Sorry.
