Apple blocks changes to MobileMe email in iCloud transition

updated 03:55 pm EDT, Tue June 7, 2011

Aliases must remain static until switchover

MobileMe email aliases must remain static until the fall, an Apple support document states. Until that time, aliases can no longer be added or deleted, set as active or inactive, or even have their colors or descriptions changed. Although actually sending and receiving email continues to work, the ability to modify the aliases will only be restored once MobileMe users start migrating to iCloud in the fall.

During yesterday's keynote presentation Apple CEO Steve Jobs openly downplayed MobileMe, remarking that it wasn't the company's "finest hour." iCloud will replace the older service, and to that end Apple has set a firm switchover deadline at the end of June next year. Developers are already receiving instructions on how to safely transfer data such as calendars.

    Why?

    Do you know something they don't? They know their email still works. What do you know?

    Apple business ethics?

    iTools started off as free with no suggestion of anything else. Then dot mac came along and anyone wanting to keep their email address now had to pay $100 a year. Now anyone who just renewed their MobileMe account cannot use the features they paid for, and no refund available.

    I'm a huge Apple fanboy, but this is just bad behavior for any business, not to mention the richest company on Earth.
