Hi there.

My mac.com account isn't working. Everytime I or a friend of mine sends an email to my mac.com account, the email doesn't show up when I check my email witz a pop3 program "no new messages on server"

i have forward turned off, but even when I turned it on I won't receive any emails from this account which the emails should be forwarded to.

and the auto-reply doesn't work either. a friend is just telling me that he gets an email with an error back that his sendmail server can't deliver to mail.mac.com.

What to do??? I can login to my iTools account without problems, and I can change the settings too.

Try switching it from a POP to an IMAP. This is how the mac.com accounts are supposed to be run.
