Like countless other people, I have had a nightmare with my Apple e-mail account since they switched from Mobile Me to iCloud. An absolute disaster. Sent messages are not saved, servers down much of the timem my iPhone and Mac laptop never sync correctly. An outrageous joke on Apple's part.
Anyway, I am over it and I have decided I wish to switch to a more reliable e-mail provider but ... I want to ensure that the Mac / Me / iCloud address is deleted so that messages are returned to senders undelievered as I will no longer be checking these accounts.
Yet I cannot find how / where I can delete the account?
Can someone help?
I think you may be mistaken Toad. I didn't insult anyone. I thanked the venerable Roger Wilmut 1 for his helpful advice and was forced to react to a rather brusque post by another user. So I think you may be getting things muddled up.
Anyway, to dismiss the complaints of the many thousands of users who've had serious problems with the transition to Mobile Me / iCloud is odd. If a car has, for instance, steering or braking problems, which cause a small percentage of its owners / drivers to have an accident.. do you then say, well, the majority of drivers experience no problems so there is no problem. Of course not. I, like many thousands of long term Mac users, many who paid good money for the Mobile Me service, have experienced some terrible problems, data corruption, lost countless important e-mails, lack of synching between devices. This is nothing to do with how I or many of my colleagues set our computers up ... but rather that there are issues at Apple's end which Apple has refused to deal with effectively.
I am happy for you that you have experienced a glitch-free existence with you Apple products but sadly many of us cannot claim the same. Just because things are fine and dandy in your bubble doesn't mean that the complaints many Apple users have are invalid.
