.Mac HomePage
Authored by: sjk on May 25, '04 06:49:26PM

I wish it were possible to assign an alias to a .Mac account for HomePage access instead of having to use the name part of the @mac.com e-mail address. Same with iChat.

I'm strongly opposed to divulging e-mail addresses through use of them with other services and wish more providers would realize that and provide an alternative.

.Mac HomePage

You could add an email-only account for 10$ (I think?) and use the main .mac name for the web stuff. Come to think of it, you can add aliases for free - you still might get some spam to the main address you'd have to weed through, but you could filter it out in a mail client.

I'm a pretty new Mac user, but I thought .mac was worth the money, even though I don't really plan to use the email address (I'm very happy with fastmail.fm). Incidentally, I primarily use Mail.app, but I prefer Thunderbird when I'm forced to use a Windows machine.
