    I use it mainly for keeping my machines in sync for the address book and iCal. Sometimes it gets itself in a pickle and I have to reset all the machines to get them syncing again. The additional things I use it for is to put up a quick set of photos and to give an automated remote backup of some of my (and my Mum's) data. The backup utility is s very underrated part of .Mac.

    I'm another dot Mac or .Mac user.

    Apple site is a good start to look at it.
    It has been discussed here many times before... and that's where the forum search option comes in!

    i love it, well worth the price - although i now buy from the US too. i have upgraded to a family membership so mum can use web gallery.

    i use it for synch, backup, webspace, email, web gallery and consider it an essential part of the mac experience.

    I searched .Mac on this forum and more or less every topic came up. Haha.

    How do you get it from the U.S.?

    Features I like:

    - Don't like using ISP email as primary, incase I want to change
    - LARGE IMAP storage, all mail is on the server
    - iLife integration
    - Domain hosting (using iWeb to make pages)
    - Access bookmarks on "remote" Macs/PCs

    But the best feature, is by far .Mac sync, keeps EVERYTHING, when setting up a new mac, or moving between 2 of your own macs, everything is the same.

    I do. It's our off-site backup. Should be good for a year or two. Then I'll have too much data.

    The IMAP service is very quick, faster than Gmail's IMAP service. Servers sometimes go down... in the last few years of using .Mac I've found it has only been out once or twice, and not for very long. When you log into .Mac (at mac.com) you can check for any issues. Brilliant service.

    Can .Mac check other imap/pop accounts for mail like Gmail does?

    IIRC it can check at least one.

    Okay, so I signed up and moved all my emails across from my old account. But for some reason in the .Mac Webmail browser, the emails wont let me toggle the sort by date tab. They come in with the oldest first. So everytime i want to read a new email, i have to click through to the last page and scroll down. Its really annoying. Anyway to make the sort order stick?

    Also the date is displayed using U.S. formatting, anyway to change this to Aus date formatting.

    Date formats is in System Preference, International, Formats.
    Date sort - once I set it up and quit Mail, it always opened the way I left it.

    Ah sorry about that...
    I'm not sure you can change those setting via web based dot Mac mail.
