If you have migrated, your email is living on the iCloud server and will not be affected by signing in and out etc on your Mac. You should be able to see it on the Mail page at http://icloud.com
Remove the MobileMe account from Mail and sign out in System Preferences>MobileMe. This will not delete any emails.
When installed, go to System Preferences>iCloud and sign in with your @me.com address. Check Mail and any of the other data types you want to sync in the checklist.

Transferring of contacts from your Mac during the migration process, and subsequent syncing of contacts between youtr Mac and iCloud, requires Lion 10.7.2 or above. Older systems cannot do this: some people have suggested a convoluted hack to do this but few people have managed to get it to work.

You can transfer them but not sync them.
In Address Book, select all your contacts and from the File Menu choose Export>Export vCard.
At http://icloud.com go to the Contacts page, click the cogwheel icon at bottom left and choose 'Import vCard': select the file you just exported from Address Book. If there are a lot of contents it may take some time to upload them all.
Obviously changes made at either end cannot be automatically transferred to the other.
