If you’re one of the 1% of MobileMe users who were experiencing problems with the service, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Apple has released a support document stating that effected MobileMe users should now have their accounts back. So all of the MobileMe emails received since July 18th will be viewable.
Unfortunately for Apple users, all emails prior to that date are unavailable. Here is Apple’s official announcement: “As a first step toward restoring service, we restored web access to a portion of your MobileMe Mail account at 10:00 p.m. PDT, July 25. You can now log into me.com, and use the Mail web application to access all the messages you have received since the July 18 service outage. You can also compose, send, and receive new messages as normal. Please note that this interim solution does not provide access to any email messages received or saved before the outage began on July 18.”
Also as a temporary precaution, Apple doesn’t want anyone changing their MobileMe password, emails, or storage allocation.
