    I had an appleID (my work email). I had an old @me account.

    When the cloud came, and it wouldn't let me use my @me with my appleID I abandoned my @me and created a new one IN my apple ID.

    Today I went into my old one, which made it a cloud account and there were all the things I'd done since I abandoned it. wtf? reminders I made today, emails...everything.

    I can't wrap my mind around that one. Everytime I tried to update my appleID with THAT @me account it wouldn't let me, but... there things are.

    Can you be more specific in your example cause I don't follow. You had an original appleID, say name@gmail.com. You also had MM, name@me.com, which you migrated to iCloud. For whatever reason, you set up another @me account, name2@me.com. I assume you set up iCloud using your name@gmail.com address correct?

    Now from here, I understand what happened, but rather, tell me what you want to do?

    I had an original appleID which was me@work.com. iTunes etc in that account. apps. everything. Last year I wanted to abandon google so I created lapsang@me.com and used that for email mirroring, calendar, address book.

    When the cloud came, it wouldn't let me use me@work.com and lapsang@me.com so I created new me@me.com I migrated calendars, emails, and address book. and then logged off from it. Stopped mirroring emails etc. after migrating I tried to add it to my me@work.com address but it wouldn't let me.

    Got my update and logged into the cloud as me@work.com. set up email with new me@me.com and moved on. tonight I logged into www.me.com as lapsang@me.com (the old account) which should have had no info in 5 days. And there were the reminders I set today (in the cloud under me@work.com) and the emails that I was no longer mirroring there. Calendar events added the last two days are there as well. make sense? It doesn't to me!

    two emails

    So, it appears with icloud there can be more than one email associated.

    It would appear that your root icloud account is the me@me.com, where you sync'd all the calendars, etc. Then, you added the lapsang@me.com to that account on the device or on the cloud and it associated with it. When you logged IN on the device with that second associated email address, it sync'd everything to the cloud
