How to Access My .Mac Account Information

by Mario Calhoun

The .Mac service from Apple was changed to MobileMe in 2009, which means your .Mac account now has an additional email address, which is your username followed by "@me.com." Your MobileMe account information can be accessed through your System Preferences on your Macintosh computer, or you can access your MobileMe account through your Internet browser. Before logging in be sure to avoid checking the "Keep my logged in for 2 weeks" box if you are using a public computer.
