I thought I was crazy, thanks for not reaffirming my theory. :p I noticed it was down when I tried to login.

I've been kinda ticked at .Mac recently. My email has been consistently unavailable, and they have been going down more and more. They also have a convenient way of not reporting every time their servers go down...

Yeah, I've lost more than a few mails over the past year, some I've even sent to myself to check and see if it was other's people's setups.

I'm not sure how hard it is to run hosting/domain/mail servers, but Apple seems to be having a heck of a time doing it.

I'm in the process of searching for a new job, so I'm kind of shackled to my .Mac addy, but once that's over, I think it's time to bail.

I have had some serious issues with .Mac the last four to six weeks. Emails getting lost or returned to sender, duplicate emails being sent, issues with passwords being required and then not working to get into my mail, mail showing up on .Mac mail using Safari but not using Mail, etc. I have not changed anything to my computer or mail preferences, etc for about a year. Don't know what is going on recently but it sucks. It has been incredibly reliable for almost three years for me- fix it Apple- please~!

This is probably the year I bail on .Mac. I don't sync my laptop with my desktop anymore, which is half the reason I had .Mac, so....
