Apple's MobileMe has a wobble

Users hunt for mail server, answers

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

MobileMe users are having trouble finding their mail server this morning, though as ever with Apple the scale of the problem remains obscure.

Several Reg readers have reported problems accessing MobileMe's email service, with both the web and IMAP access giving error messages. However, others (including Vultures here in the office) are having no such issues, so the scale of the problem is hard to judge.

MobileMe is scheduled for some maintenance at six tomorrow morning (22.00 PDT), with some problems expected but normal service scheduled to resume half an hour later. Whether that's relevant or not we don't know: we've asked Apple but aren't holding our breath for a response.

So if you're waiting for a response from someone with a MobileMe account then it's probably not their fault they've not got back to you, and if you're the one with a MobileMe account then just relax for now in the confidence that you can always blame Apple. ®
