    The curious person I am,
    I just bought .mac and I decided to try and use iChat
    with my .mac username, but @me.com instead
    and it works.

    Nothing big, but I thought it was interesting that iChat ID's are already useable. However, imap.me.com wasn't reachable when trying to bring mail in.

    Didn't work for me:

    Host unknown (Name server: me.com: host not found)

    EDIT: oh, your talking about iChat, I thought you meant Mail.

    oh...i just bought a .Mac family plan as I would like my email addresses to end in @mac.com instead of @me.com or @mobileme.com

    Hope i'll still be able to get the @mac.com email address now.

    Negatory on mail

    Authentication for iChat might work, but not mail yet:
