    So - I want to keep my .mac email address - but we've been told to change to server.

    No problem. Mail > Preferences > Accounts.

    Edit the incoming server from to

    Close - yup, save changes.

    Go back to preferences...and it's back to

    This is like the time iCal wouldn't remember any of my settings - it stupidly annoying.

    Any ideas.

    ditto. Same thing happening to me. According to the documentation it should say "" It doesn't, and even if I change it, it flips back. That being said, everything works.

    I manually changed to before the mobileme updates were released to have some fun. When I saw there was a mobileme update, I set my mail settings back to the .mac originals. I then installed version 1 of the mobileme update when it was released via software update. However, version 1.1 of the update came out later, so I then I installed version 1.1.

    Something in that chain of events similar to yours?

    I manually installed the earlier update, changed the settings to just have the email address ( I do no intend to change email addresses ) and have since installed the auto-update 1.1 . Only since then have I looked at trying to change the server it points at....but no cigar.

    same thing here

    I'm expereincing the same problem with

    The IMAP address won't stick. It always reverts to

    I'm not sure it seems to matter. but it is irritating that things aren't working as they should.
