Hi all, I am having problems receiving e-mail to my .mac address. I can send with no problems (sent to my gmail account) but when I try to send to .mac I get a delivery failure report.

I did a message by the inbox saying something about 99% of my quota used.

I'm really not sure about setting this up correctly.

Any help would be a great help.

check you mail preferences....
incoming server should mail.mac.com
outgoing server smtp.mac.com

I do not have a .mac account.. but the "quota" email sounds like you may have used up all the space on your .mac account, and you need to go in and delete some of the older messages...

Just a thought...

Checked it and that's how it is.

Regarding my mac e-mail address, do I have to have an active .mac account?
I have to 60 trail at the moment but when this runs out will I still have my email?

Thanks for the replies

MaDDoG is correct... once it expires... it is expired.
