    Yeah, sorry. That was intended for Ronmagi.

    I don't know. I've been and all along. I've never tried that transition, so I don't know how much trouble it would be. I understand that you can't change your existing iCloud account from a AppleID to an AppleID, so you'll have to set up a new iCloud account under a new @me/@icloud AppleID.


    If the fragmentation you noted bothers you, as it seems to do, you can avoid it (or at least reduce it) by using a single iCloud account for everything. (You can still keep the older and/or email addresses if people know you by one or the other of them.)

    I'm sorry you've had such a problem with Apple's Mail application. I've been a Mac user since the year they were first introduced, plus a Windows user to a lesser degree (in emulation and directly on the hardware).


    I have ten mail accounts attached to Mail on the machine I'm using at the moment, at least half of them active on a daily basis. They are on iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo, ISP, and ESP servers; most are IMAP, a couple still on POP. Most are also connected to my iPad.


    I've never seen the duplication of sent messages. I do see the occasional duplication of incoming mail, which I put down to an oddity of how I use mail rules. I also see an occasional message "come back from the dead" after I've trashed it; I think that's due to a problem in communicating with IMAP servers.


    If you want to try for help diagnosing your Mail problems, you should post a separate message on that topic. Somebody will probably be able to give you some assistance. I'm not here every day, but I'll try to jump in if I notice the thread.
