    Just a bit suspicious given the recent "mobile.me" rumours ...

    Everyone in my location (me included) is reporting that .Mac email servers are not responding at all right now. Also the sync services are down. Could be nothing I suppose but suspicious nonetheless.

    Some of the email is showing up on webmail, but none of the clients can sync or access the .Mac mail server.

    It's been down all day here. If you log into the .mac website, it shows that the mail service is having issues for 100% of their users.

    I can check my .Mac mail on the website or on my iPhone, but Mail.app isn't working.

    Strangely, my MBP's Mail.app to .Mac works (at least, it doesn't complain) and it's 1 foot to my left. Whilst my MDD's (which I'm using) Mial.app has little triangle complaint icons next to my .Mac mail.

    Both are 10.5.3.

    Odd.

    Down for me as well but I'm concerned as I'm getting a message stating that it rejected my password. Connection doctor states logging in failed, please make sure username and password are valid.

    First messages I got just before were about the port 993.

    That's why - you're in a fictional place. Melbourne is in Australia. .Mac will always work in a place that doesn't exist.

    It's gone from bad to worse. Now the webmail interface is down as well.

    I'm not very tolerant of email outages. I think they are unacceptable. The email server provided by my domain host has been rock solid for years. .Mac and Gmail seem to have periodic outages.

    Do you think Apple have gone all green and switch off everything when they go home at 5pm?

    I keep getting password error - if I go online, I can log in but cannot access the mail portion.

    Man, while I hope it grows big time, the fear of them turning a deaf ear to PRO users and focusing on the bread and butter (good business sense of course) of iPhones, iPods and probably cater to Windows users, I hope they don't change the .mac email extension.

    What worries me is how they dropped computer from the APPLE name and then MAC from everyone that works in their stores in order to taylor to other OS's.

    .Mac mail HOSED. Way to go, Apple...

    Totally down in San Diego.

    UNSAT, Apple. Doing upgrades should be transparent to your user base, NOT affecting "100% of .Mac users". :mad:

    Now you're just being silly. Paradise Beach was a s*ithouse Aussie soap. Even in the real world it didn't exist.
