    I just switched in the iCloud mail option in my iCloud settings. I am not fully with apple services. I have gmail and outlook account which forward to my iCloud account. Seems to be going well so far.

    So what is your primary email service?

    Do you use @mac, @me or @icloud as your primary email service..

    Stock mail app for now until the mailbox app adds support for exchange accounts. I don't want to switch between the mail apps that's kind of pointless .

    I use Gmail for all my accounts. I use a combination of the stock email app and the Gmail app. I use the stock app for everyday reading and the gmail app for more in-depth sorting and such.

    Also to add.....

    Did you know Google reads through your Gmail before you do? Googles business plan revolves around searching through your email to flag keywords so it can deliver you ads. That way it can support the free service that Gmail is. Not to pick on Google, because nearly every other free email service does the same. If you access your email from a web browser, you are mostly likely providing daily advertiser info culled from your correspondence.

    I dont have a huge problem with this, any web page does pretty much the same thing on commercial sites. But what if you want no ads? Suppose you just want to go in and read your mail without engaging in an advertising focus group? iCloud provides ad-free email. Not to over simplify, but Google uses Gmail to attract users with free software, so it can dive into your personal info and serve up ads.

    Apples business model is mainly to sell you new hardware, and to provide free software services to make using and syncing that hardware a great user experience. So iCloud does not need to be ad supported. Again, nothing hugely wrong with ad supported free email services, but once you journey into iClouds clean ad-free web email, you may not go back.

    You most probably have an iCloud account. Go to www.icloud.com and check account settings. There you can also set up alias instead of having various email accounts. I have since switched to iCloud entirely, on my phone and mac. It is nice.

    Gmail for personal and Blogger ~ Hotmail for Twitter notifications and web signups ~ Outlook for work.
    I should go for a 4th and try out iCloud especially after reading John Yester's post. Now that's an eye-opener !

    Recently reformed Gmail user. Now using iCloud as my main email address, hotmail (classic hotmail) for web stuff, and GMail will remain as Apple requires a secondary account. Using iCloud is pretty nice, since it is all Apple, your stuff sync well, I can now use iCloud for my contacts and calendar. Its all good.

    I have emails from Gmail and Hotmail forwarded to iCloud.
