.Mac Mail Servers

Looks like the .Mac mail servers are going away: mail.mac.com is no longer working for me as an incoming mail server. I've had an @mac.com address since before it was the .Mac service, and I've steadfastly refused to use the @me.com address that came with the change to MobileMe.

Now that iCloud is the service de jour, Apple appears to be coaxing users into changing the settings for their longstanding accounts. If the service appears to be rejecting your password, try changing the incoming server to imap.mail.me.com. (smtp.mac.com still seems to be working as an outgoing server.)
