Mobile me FAQ
As Mobile Me nears its unveiling, Apple has written an FAQ support document for current .Mac customers who are curious about the impending transition, while a user has informed MacNN some unofficial good news regarding "@me.com" email addresses. The FAQ addresses many questions from users regarding whether or not services will be available, or whether user input is required for the process, most of which is revealed to be automatic.
Apple confirms in the FAQ that it will kill several of the .Mac features – web access to bookmarks, iCards, .Mac slides, and Mac OS X 10.3 Panther syncing – but web galleries and web sites will exist on both .Mac and Mobile Me servers.
In addition to the official FAQ, a user writes MacNN to point out that sending emails to firstname.lastname@example.org now functions the same as email@example.com. Users are now able to obtain email through either address, although it is uncertain whether this feature will stay up between now and Mobile Me's official launch in early July.
