My friend currently uses a 3rd party email address and I think it would be useful for her to sign up to iCloud to sync her Contacts and Bookmarks across 2 Macs and an iPhone.


She currently has an Apple ID ((used with iTunes) which has her 3rd party email and a password.


If she registers for iCloud how does this work....

Can she obtain a .me email address even though her current Apple ID has the other email address?

Could she make a new Apple ID?


Any advice appreciated


I would like to encourage her to change heremail to a .me account as this will syncronise across her devices

but this may be too inconvenient - we'll see.

(I wonder if talktalk provide an email forwarding service - if so she could have all her email forwarded to .me email)
