Just switched from a 5 year old Dell to a new 2.4 GHz 20" iMac running Leopard. I am not a fan of this flat keyboard, but I will get used to it, I hope.

My question is:

Does anyone else use the Dot Mac email and what is your opin. I do like the MAIL client (the Mac version of Outlook.) When you send an email it makes a whooshing sound like a plane taking off. HA.

Also, I haven't really figured out iDisk yet..or "Time Machine," or "Backup."

I dislike .mac mail, ever since I first used a mac. It's slow, can't be acessed from iPhone/Podtouch, and costs money...Gmail is way better.

BTW the flat keyboard is my FAVORITE thing...I'll swap mine with you!(Logitech MX-3000) lol!

I seem to make too many typos on it. And I am a fast typist!

Couldn't agree with you more. It makes up for the colour banding on the screen.

As for .mac mail, I've never tried it. Gmail IMAP seems to work ALMOST perfectly (minus the stupid Sent Items and Trash labels). I'm still with webmail, though.

I'm a dot mac subscriber.
.mac in Mail.app is the best solution for Mac users as it's a true IMAP, unlike Gmail which does not comply to the standard...It's also fully accessible from the iPhone through the mail client
Though it's true the web interface is bit slow. You'll find one or two greasemonkeys to clean it a little (if you use Firefox)

I mainly use .mac for the iDisk awesome integration in my Macbook Pro.
I'm waiting to see how the Gmail IMAP will be working on my iPhone...If it fails to be efficient Ill definitely forward all my email accounts to my .Mac account and use it a my main emails.

I don't expect hacks to properly work on the "iPod"
