Hey all,


My old iMac 24" desktop is still running 10.6.8 because I'm too cheap to buy RAM & upgrade (yeah, I know ... I should just spend the money).  At any rate, I used MobileMe and mac.com address for 10+ years and it stopped working yesterday. 


I do have a year old MacBook Pro running 10.7.4 which I was able to use to set up my iCloud account and use the iCloud account to send/receive email through the Mail program on that machine. 


So here's my question:  What's the best way to configure Mail on my old desktop running 10.6.8 now that MobileMe is kaput? 


BTW, I added my iCloud account as an associated account using the Accounts feature under Mail preferences and it seems to be working (although the little gear next to the account name is constantly spinning).  Should I now just delete the associated MobileMe account?


(Incidentally, I tried calling Apple Support but ran into a brick wall.  I've paid $99/year for my mac.com account for over 10 years, and the guys on Apple Support just couldn't help me, because my desktop is out of its support contract.  What kind of customer support is that?)


Thanks for advice or links to appropriate on-line articles.
