Old Mail vs. New Mail

November 30 0

Well, I got my email from Apple this afternoon telling me that in May I will no longer have the option of not converting to the new MobileMe Mail app. Would like to hear from some of you who have converted whether or not the new app has settled down and what exactly I'll be losing in terms of capability. After the MobileMe cutover debacle almost three years ago, I'm a little hesitant to jump in with both feet. Might be time to start investigating alternatives??

Hi there,
Don't think that's going to happen. What I don't quite understand is that while a "cloud" isn't exactly a trivial construct, it isn't rocket science either. If MM were a commercial network in a wider sense, they'd have been out of business long ago. I think Apple kinda got confused when they went from USB syncing via iTunes to the wireless thing - now it's a hodge-podge of alternative ways to sync your stuff. When it works it's great, but none of us can afford to depend on something that doesn't ALWAYS come through (like new events that don't seem to make it through to my computer(s) at times. I'm getting too old to remember all that stuff in my head - I'm almost to the point of having iCal schedule my pee breaks so I don't forget to go .
