Apple notifies MobileMe members of iCloudcom email options

As one of the many people who purchased a MobileMe subscription in years past, you've probably already made the transition to iCloud and haven't looked back. In July of 2012, Apple noted during iOS 6 beta testing that new addresses would be created for anyone using Apple's cloud computing solution as well as former MobileMe members. The transition to email is apparently complete, as Apple is sending out a note to those MobileMe members telling them about their new email address option.

While Apple created a new email address for anyone who had a or address in the past, any one of those three domain prefixes can be used. An email sent to, for example, appears in any or inbox as well. Here's the text of the Apple email:

All new iCloud Mail accounts now come with an email address. As an existing user, we'd like to offer you this new address as well. We have reserved [MobileMe user name] for you, and you can now use this address with your iOS devices and computers by following these simple instructions.

If you prefer, you can continue to use your current email address just as you always have.

No matter which address you use, you'll continue to receive all your mail, whether it's sent to your,, or address.

For many of us, we'll keep the or address ... but thanks for asking, Apple.
