    MacBook
    You could start a Gmail account now and just forward all of your .Mac email to the Gmail address... :black:
    Or you could configure Mail to download your .Mac email, too.

    Yeah, but Mail has a special profile for .mac accounts that uses IMAP, which stores the messages on the server AFAIK?
