    Basically no - however you could make use of the alias feature of your iCloud account - keep your original account and add an account - and simply use that - this is done within preference at - Mail - Pete

    You do it at  Go there, sign in with your Apple ID - select Mail - Preferences - Accounts and then chose your alais - you have up to three. Pete

    By changing apple ID, I meant that you crate a new one and leave the other :) I know changing the email which represents your apple ID doesn't influence your backups and purchases. But you can't change your with doing this... As I told before, I don't want to change my Just want to use it's mail service like it should be!

    Thanks - worked for me.  I just turne off everything off - saving to the phone if prompted.  Then as soon as I went back into iCloud - it came up with my new email address & I turned all on again.

    Worked like a charm!  Thanks.  Can't believe I didn't didn't think to scroll all the way down before and look for the delete button for iCloud.

    Yes this is the problem apple is having. i already opened up a case with apple on this issue and they have been working on it for the last 2 months! the issue went all the way up to the engineers. i finally received an email back from them today that the @me address is finally removed from my account. so if i receive mail from icloud it will no longer go to the incorrect @me address, and to the address associated with my apple id. however, it still shows the incorrect email address in my icloud account on my phone. the guy i talked to said maybe deleting and re-adding the account would get rid of it, but it didn't. so i still have to see it on my phone, but at least it is no longer associated with my account, supposedly! so it looks like there really is nothing we, as consumers, can do about this issue. it took apple engineers just to delete it from my icloud account. insanity.

    I was able to fix the issue by deleting and recreating the iCloud account on my iPad. Everything is now perfect. Thank you !!!!!!!!!!

    Also adding to this thread.

    Before i switched over the iCloud, i was able to use alias email address using the Mail client on the iPad and iPhone. afterwards i was not able to. After finding this thread, i had done most of what some users had done without success, could only see the primary account email address when creating new email, i could reply with the alias. After taking all the information in from all of the threads i tried more more thing, which that was go to the alias page under preferences on the and just re-save the info. after a few minutes i was able again from the iPad and iPhone create new email message using any alias i had configured.
