i'm here cause i have the same problem but i can't change the primary email address cause there's no "edit "button aside of this line. the only address i could changed are the secondary email adress. is that normal ? could you please help me ? i can't received my itunes bills or news cause my apple id is a mac.com address, and it's not normal. and i had called the apple store france for help and the guy had turned off the call when he had realized that he wasn't able to manage the problem so i'm very disappointed and furious, 1 hour of assistance call and puff nothing.
please help me and contact me at this other adress so i could have your reply : email@example.com
I have has tha firstname.lastname@example.org E-mail for quite a while and I really don't understand why Apple cannot filter this so that we can get our E-mails, also you can't edit them either.
Can a developer from apple or a tech solve this issue, is only a matter of filtering that is all, so that we may received our E-mail those of us who are using @mac.com.
Same problem and Im frustrated beyond belief. My apple account keeps saying it needs to verify my email address so I can login so its sent a verify to the mac.com address, well thats great Apple but I cant access that email account anymore because you closed it!
Seriously, I have been using macs since the Apple IIe and lately its just as frustrating, irritating as that other big computer maker and dont even think about getting good customer service from Apple anymore.
+1 Same or similar problem here.
1. Email seems to be bounced by _some_ Google servers only. I'm receiving email at my ...@mac.com email address just fine from other services, no problem, including some gmail / google apps based addresses.
2. The error message in the bounce replies I've gotten from my friends is slightly different than the one OP received:
Technical details of temporary failure:
The error that the other server returned was:
451 4.5.3 Too many rejections; try again later.
Looking forward to an answer on why this is happening.
I've been trying to figure out this issue ever since me.com was introduced. I've read thousands of articles and forums and posts, none of them solved this issue. Which disappointed and frustrated me was Apple they must have noticed this issue that there're hundreds of thousands if not millions users are complaining, but Apple didn't do anything to fix it, even their support team didn't want to handle this issue either.
Doesn't Apple know how difficult and frustrated to change a primary email address? They just don't care! For being an Apple user for many years, I'm so disappointed.
Beside the fact that I WAS PROUD to have a 'Mac.com' e-mail address not so ridicoloulsly anonim as 'me.com' (and we could open a huge topic about this silly decision to discontinue this domain), my question is: WHERE ARE GOING the mails sent to this account, largely spreaded around to all my suppliers, clients and friends also as ADVERTISING to benefit Apple and underline that I was (and am!) a MacINTOSH(!!!!) user????
Is it possible that this simple question stays not answered by this……… SUPPORT of Apple???
I have same problem and phone apple support, they have spent 3 hours but nothing sorted. Now I can't purchase anything as my id does not work on apple store and I can't reset it as I am not able to receive emails on mac.com email. Is apple simply hate there loyal customer . I have 3 apple devices and now stuck . I have this ID from last 8 years. Do they hate there loyal customer.
I have asked support team if there is a way to transfer my purchases to different ID , which they said no. So how i can use my apple id , They can't do anything. I have ask support team if they can send me solution by writing to me (email) that they can't do anything. She refused to email. Apple used to be name we can trust now its a name which can frustrate you lot and no help. Time to think of switching to something better?
