|How to Keep your MobileMe mail working w/o Lion or iCloud compatible device|
Included in today's (May 1st) updates to some of Apple's iCloud related docs is what I know will be a welcome option to many - a note was added for those that can't or don't want to upgrade to Lion and only care about their mobileme Mail accounts continuing to work:
"What if I just want to keep using my email on all my devices?
As of May 1, you can choose to keep using your mail after MobileMe ends, even on devices that don't meet the iCloud system requirements. Just go to me.com/move and select the option to keep using your email after MobileMe ends. Once you have completed this short process, your mail will continue to work on devices that don't meet the iCloud requirements after MobileMe ends on June 30, 2012."
When you login at the above URL you'll see a 2nd option on the page (about having Incompatible devices). Select that option and you should shortly get a mail from MobileMe with the subject "Your mail will keep working after MobileMe ends."
BTW: The MobileMe to iCloud Transition FAQ also has a note about an extension for those that purchased additional storage for MobileMe:
"MobileMe members with 20GB of purchased storage receive a complimentary iCloud storage upgrade of 20GB, and accounts with additional purchased storage (40GB to 60GB) receive a complimentary upgrade of 50GB after moving to iCloud. These free upgrades are good through September 30, 2012. After that date, you can continue the upgrade at the regular price or let it expire and use the free 5GB plan."
