Ok, very weird stuff going on. I am using OS 10.1 and Mail. I can send mail to and from my mac.com account but all of the other features of my iDisk do not work. I can't mount it, and I can't see it from a Windows machine either. I either press the button on my Finder Toolbar, or try from the Connect to Server menu, it just gives me a timeout box that always times out or an error message telling me that my username and password are incorrect, and it points me to System Preferences. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks

That's a relief - I thought it was just me. I'm having exactly the same problem - mac.com mail account works fine, but trying to access my iDisk from the Finder's menu option results in "your username or password is incorrect" type hilarity. Re-entering username/password in the Internet system preference makes no difference. I didn't have this trouble under 10.0.4, only 10.1, and even then I'm fairly sure it worked to begin with.
