There was a page on mobileme where I could view my alias list, where is this in iCloud?

    Welcome to Apple Communities

     

    iCloud email alias

  • beerijuana Level 1 (0 points)

    No answer in that link. I migrated from mobileme/.mac/iTools, I had several alias accounts all forwarding to the main account, some me.com, some both me.com and mac.com. All were there on mobileme before migrating, all gone now.

    You can add 3 email alias, and MobileMe aliases don't move to iCloud, so you have to add them again

    No.

     

    All mobileme aliases move, even if you have 5 (10 if you have .me and .mac variants)..

     

    You would have to delete some of these before adding new ones however due to the max of 3.

    icloud.com

     

    Log in, choose mail and look at the settings/prefs for mail in the browser - they're listed under the aliases tab - if they don't appear log out and back in and hopefully they will.

    This is not what it says on the FAQ:

     

    Can I keep my MobileMe email address once I move to iCloud?

    Yes. When you move to iCloud, you can keep your existing me.com or mac.com email address and any email aliases you have created.

    Tried this, it didn't work. I just get the pop up to create aliases, not my existing alias list.

     

    I still have the option to send from different .me/.mac accounts in mail on Lion, but not on mail in iCloud. Nor can I find any means to manage the alias accounts already existing (8 in total, including the two domain variations).

  • Alley_Cat Level 6 (19,210 points)

    The first time I looked there it said 3 of 3 aliases available.

     

    I logged out.

     

    The next time I logged in all the old ones listed.

     

    This happened on several accounts I migrated.

     

    Quit your browser and try it again.

     

    Also test an email to an alias to see if it still works.

     

    Any continuing problems talk to support at expresslane.apple.com

    Have quit browser, and rebooted and tried to see the list at icloud.com (I did this first, before even posting the question), tried again and I'm still getting the "add 3 alias" pop up.

     

    These  are all still in use, most going back to the iTools -> .mac transition.

     

    Have tested a couple of aliases, send and recieve, they still work from mail on Lion, I can't access to send on iCloud.

     

    I'm just worried that they'll disappear in Sept with all the other stuff I spent over a thousand bucks on maintaining for over a decade.

    For the avoidance of doubt, you are talking about aliases and not sub accounts aren't you.

    Ha! I can't get past "Issue Description" on expresslane.apple.com, there is no input field using Firefox or Safari.

     

    What ever happened to the Chat help?

    Aliases

    NO YOU CAN NOT!! As of this posting any of your me.com email address aliases will be converted to icloud.com addresses!! So now intead of myintitials@me.com I have to be myinitials@icloud.com!!

    Whoever coined the stupid term "Cloud" should me beaten to a pulp with an iDevice!!! MobileMe was far superior name!
