    It also works for the aliases you have set up.

    Anyone else?

    I tried sending to your email '[email protected]' from my .Mac email address but it fails!

    But i can send to other addresses. Weird.

    Update: Here's what Google returned:

    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

    Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

    [email protected]

    Technical details of permanent failure:
    PERM_FAILURE: Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 5.1.1 unknown or illegal alias: [email protected] (state 14).

    That's probably because the "handle" is only a placeholder for f4rr.3LL-'s actual username.

    i think it's a gradual update. You just happen to be one of the first ones to get their me.com address working.

    Hi macychic. I'm not sure if Digital Walker has it. But you can get it cheap at eBay. Got mine there at around P 2,250. It normally costs $99.00, around P 4,500.00.

    Have you tried the 60-day trial?

    Remember that once MobileMe starts, you will not be able to use the .Mac domain. Only the .ME. At least that's what i read. So better start signing up for the trial now! MobileMe starts July and that's tomorrow. Not sure of the exact date.

    you can opt not to wait till July 8 to activate your dotmac account. It will expire on July 8, 2009 anyway. Please correct me if I'm wrong. :)

    it will expire on 7 days from now. well, an extension of one week of free service is a big deal for me so i'm patiently waiting. i just want to know if in case the trial version was automatically converted into .me, possible pa kaya na i-load yung .mac activation key. i might taking a great risk here, i just want to hear professional advices. it might save my day.
