    I realy think that we are part of a test to see our responce and what can the company spect from a system crash, there is no reason why my father, brother, girlfriend and mother have no problem even that its from the same account or they were open the same day, I think this is some kind of survey I think ill be digging more deeply

    Good luck to you all

    The fix started with my email being flooded with email alerts from this forum and then shortly after the Apple Support emails started, my tests emails started to drop in. I havn't read all of the posts in this thread but has anyone floated the idea that Apple got hacked and didn't want to admit it publically? Just a thought. I am currently up and running. I hope everyone waiting for critical emails got them in time. Fingers crossed the server stays afloat.

    Interesting theory. I was thinking maybe Apple got hacked and refused to admit it.

    I dont think so, no one is bragging about it

    And only mail system was off for some of us,  thats really not interesting for hackers

    Now only 1% of users where harm about this and its was not only in one part of the world so that we could blame hackers or system failure on a specific server, this was on a close door, that is why no one new about it, hacking would be a realy big news

    I still do not have email on client server, my mac or my android phone. It has been a full 24 hours at this point, I had some very very important email communications expected today. I am really angry/aggrivated and frusterated.


    I suggest this:

    today is the first time in 6 years im going to look at another provider other than Apple.


    i'm SICK of this problem with icloud.


    I have to manage 7 users at work ALL with icloud all with multiple devices

    ALL having problems with icloud.


    Further more, itunes in Australia is one big ripp off, and the movie library *****.

    icloud has completely stuffed my personal itunes account, i'm soooo over it.

  • André Berly Calculating status...

    Well, it was too good to be true! After one hour OK, it is down again!


  • Nerfsqueezer Calculating status...

    Well I was up and running for about 2 hours but now I still can't send nor receive emails from my account.  This is just unacceptable and my blood pressure keeps rising.

    My account has magicvally come alive during the night and I have 182 items in my inbox to work through. It has reset the ones from the previous day so it looks like someone has done a restore back to a certain point the day before yesterday. So I have had a major service outage for 36 hours. Not happy but Google prodiucts are even worse in my experience at home and in the office so I won't be moving yet.

    Ditto for my account.


    Also had email from Apple Support (spent 90 minutes on iPhone yesterday) asking me to fill in survey with my feedback on the support call. So I did, concluding with "Tim Cook needs a metaphorical kick up the arse, and a gentle reminder that no company is too big to fail. Think about CDC, Rim, Nokia..."

    NO FIX HERE in Milwaukee.  Still  no messages in Maill.App.. I do have messages online in iCloud, so at least I am still lucky that way....  B UT I WANT MY MAIL ON MY LAPTOP...  iCloud is too slow and clumsy,



  • iregan Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yeah...the last two days my apple dot me account has been down! Worse, the last email i got, that didnt load was from my employer with the list of availability for next week. I am a freelance waiter, and need to apply for the jobs they send me. Because of this outage, i missed the jobs for next week. Apple owes me a weeks pay now!!!


    Seriously, this is F'd up, and wouldn't have happened under Steves watch. Or at the very least, wouldn't have gone on this long!


    I paid $99 for mobile me from the beginning. Is this how its gonna be now that its free? Total BS.


    Get er' fixed Apple!

    icloud is only free for 5gigs, but Apple will not let me change to the free service. They plan to charge me $40.00 on 6/2/2012 and NO way will they allow me to quit the service.

    I was never a jobs lover, but apple now has the "Gates"-money-grap problems!!!

    My's Inbox has not been accessible since last night on all 3 Apple devices: Mac (both in Mail and through Safari)' iPad, and iPhone.  I see a mail come in for a second, and then VANISH!


    All sent mail and trash are available.  And I also see notes.


    Interesting enough, I deleted iCloud and reattached all services on my iPad ... And now I have multiple calendars and old reminders are back!


    I think Apple tried an upgrade and must have failed miserably.


    And I'm an Appple Consultant ... How do you think I feel?!?!?!
