ok so i just "set up" my iCloud tonight thinking it would be the greatest thing since sliced bread and have thus far found it absolutely pointless.... i set it up with my macbook and iPhone thinking things would mesh together nicely but can not seem to get anything to work aside from photo stream, which is an absolute disaster seeing as you can't even delete photos on your iPhone unless you turn off photo stream, thus loosing all the pictures..... genius? anyway, the main and really only reason i wanted to set this up is so i would not have to read and delete emails on all of my devices multiple times. however, upon turning on iCloud, i was prompted to create a new email. in doing so, as I am sure you are aware, it added an @me inbox to both my macbook and my iPhone to go along with my gmail. i have NO clue what purpose this serves. does this mean the only emails that will sync will be those sent to and by my @me account? i do not want or need a new email address as I have used my gmail account for years now... can someone explain this to me? there is surprisingly very little information on anything involving iCloud out there and their instructions are essentially useless.... help!
