Dad nabit, I gave you the wrong link. I do apologize for that. Please check the following link. You'll need to click on the manage your id button, and sign in to manage your account. You'll see an option for adding an alternate e-mail adr, or changing it.https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/

I followed your directions and believe I arrived at the site you described. However, the one e-mail address they don't allow you to edit there is the Alternate Apple ID. I like the others am still stuck with the old @me.com Alternate Apple ID address and want to change it to @icloud.com.
As someone else stated, I don't recall ever choosing the @me.com address as my alternate Apple ID. I'm guessing Apple must have automatically assigned it. I wish they would automatically change it to the new @icloud.com address!

I think it is created when you create your first email account using icloud mail. That is what mine did. One thing I have noticed, a lot of questions in the forums but no help from Apple. That isn't cool at all. Great product but support in forums leaves a little. Everyone keep digging. Maybe we will find a way.

Thanks for your reply. I thought that was how the alternate account was generated, but I wasn't sure.
With regard to no help from Apple. That is always something that puzzled me about these Apple Forums. I understand why Apple can't interject itself into EVERY forum discussion. Especially considering that many forum questions are solved by Forum members. But, I never understood why, from a Customer Service and Public Relations perspective, why Apple could not jump in on a disussion like this one...where everyone is going in circles and making no progress and getting totally frustrated.
After all, someone from Apple is moderating these forums and looking at all the posts. Just ask folks who have had their posts removed by the Apple Moderator. IMO, a lot of those removed posts would have never come to be if an "Apple Expert" just stepped into one of the especially problematic discussions and gave the answer. Then the frustration would much more rarely build to the level where folks post comments that end up being removed for being unacceptably nasty, rantish, etc.
Peace and Love to All in this Forum and Best Wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving! Mr. Luigi
