Apple started migrating @me.com email accounts to @icloud.comPosted: November 8, 2012
Apple have initiated the migration of email addresses using @me.com domain to @icloud.com .
Users whose email-ids are migrated have started receiving communication from Apple on the newly reserved email address. This email address is ready to use. iOS devices have already started reflecting the new email address without any action from the user side.
The new iCloud accounts are ready for use without any further action from the user.
You have the option to select the new address while composing a new mail. You can refer instructions here.
me.com addresses were reserved for the phased out MobileMe service. Hope Apple will stick on to iCloud service unlike its ill-fated earlier products.
