Apple's beleaguered MobileMe service should now be fully operational, according to a status update. Following almost three weeks of difficulties, the company says it has resolved the vast majority of Mail issues, in particular webmail and message history issues that have persisted for 1 percent of MobileMe subscribers. Despite this a chatline has been established solely for people who may still be coping with e-mail problems.
Apple notes that an unrelated bug appeared briefly on Monday, causing contact and calendar sync to break when connecting over-the-air from an iPhone or iPod touch. In some cases the affected data disappeared from handhelds entirely, despite it remaining online and on computers. The bug has since been fixed, though some people may need to reboot their device, turn contact and calendar syncing off, then turn it back on again.
