Just letting you know about http://fastmail.fm as a great .Mac alternative. It’s a free service with no ads that provides email accessible through IMAP and the web. .Mac accounts can be easily transferred across using its ‘IMAP Migration’ feature. It provides an online status page, weekly uptime report, user forum, support email address, and optional paid upgrades for more storage/features (including SpamAssassin spam protection, use of your own domain, etc).

FastMail.FM has been around for 4 years and has had the same business model the whole time, so it has gained a lot of user trust and support–no “bait and switch”.

On the EmailDiscussions.com forum the .Mac issue came up, and a number of users suggested that FastMail.FM would make a good migration option:
