How to Make a .Mac Email Address
By Nicole Thelin
Although the @mac.com email address has officially been phased out, a site does exist to allow users to create these vintage addresses. The email address can be used for iChat and other basic services but will not authorize the full features of the .Mac or MobileMe experience. Users who seek the full functionality of those advanced features must sign up for MobileMe, Apple's Internet service that provides media sharing, email, calendar, online storage and more.
Access the "My Apple ID" page on Apple.com.
Choose your "Apple ID." This is the part of the email address that comes before @mac.com.
Fill in the remainder of the form, including your desired password and security question. The form will also request your birthday, name, current email address, preferred language, etc.
Fill in the verification code by reading the letters in the box.
Press "Create Apple ID."
