    ....or does it?










    As we are paying for the service (those who have an account anyways) I don't see why we shouldn't get push email. Unless of course we do? Can anyone confirm this or not?

    It really bothers me that we are paying Apple for our .Mac email yet they give Yahoo users push? WTF?

    I love it when stuff like this comes up.

    Did you buy .Mac for push email?

    No but all things considering now with the iPhone I bet it would be great to have.

    No, but you have to admit... it would make sense.

    So if it would be great then getting mad that .mac doesn't do it serves no purpose, but wishing for it as a feature upgrade (free) would certainly add value to such service that some already question as being worth the cash.

    Now I'm thirsty.

    EVERYBODY click the link and complain! If we get enough people to comment surely Apple will have to do something?

    So tell everyone! Even people without a .mac account and get them to comment so we can get it added!!! :D

    nope - but it's not surprising either. The .Mac SMTP and IMAP servers are slow as heck already - what would happen if thousands of iPhone users started to have their e-mails pushed to their handsets?

    They should first of all concentrate on upgrading their server farms - e-mail and iDisk performance are a joke. The web services are even worse...
