My .mac (now Mobile Me) email has be non functional since last Friday. I can’t believe a company with the resources of Apple can’t get an email server fixed in 4 to 6 hours much less a whole week. Walt Mosberg says the other services aren’t very reliable either. I had been told that they were storing all incoming emails in a queue, but when I asked them if they could print out my emails and fax them to me (I know that is insane, but they weren’t offering me anything useful and being down for a whole week is even more crazy than faxing emails) I found out that their servers are simply rejecting incoming connections so after four days they will be returned as undeliverable. At this point, Gmail looks a whole lot more reliable than the Apple’s service.
