Apple debuts new .Mac webmail

Apple today debuted the company’s new .Mac webmail. It’s got a whole new look, updated features, and it’s available today. With its smart use of the latest web technology, the new .Mac webmail will remind you of the Mail application on your desktop.

In the new .Mac webmail, you’ll find:
• Drag-and-drop functionality
• A message pane
• Quick Reply
• Address Book integration
• Message previews
• Message flagging
• Keyboard shortcuts

Unlike most webmail services, Apple’s .Mac webmail uses IMAP. So you can rest easy knowing that your .Mac mail will be just as you left it, no matter where you log on next.

To get the most out of the new .Mac webmail, make sure you’re using the recommended version of Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer:
Mac OS X: Safari 1.2 or later, Firefox 1.0.4 or later
Windows: Firefox 1.0.4 or later, Internet Explorer 6 or later

Then just sign in and get started here.

  1. I’m useing Safari 2.0.4, but it wouldn’t work for me. The Inbox and all my mail showed, but it wouldn’t display any of the email messages or change folders if I clicked on them. I even tried logging in/out three times.

  2. Apple’s new Web Mail is nice but I just lost 2/3 of an email to a friend due to its not notifying me that it was timing out. When I finished the email it told me it had timed out. When I checked Drafts, only a third of the text was there. Not too impressive a start though the features are nicer.

  3. Update for me… The new .Mac webmail worked just fine using Firefox

    Took Jim’s suggestion and emptied my cache and now it’s working properly using Safari 2.0.4. Thanks, Jim! Hopefully .Mac is fixed for good now.
