Using .Mac to Create and Serve Your Web Pages

Apple's .Mac is a suite of services you can access. These services include the following:

  • E-Mail Using .Mac provides you with an e-mail account you can use to send and receive e-mail. Your .Mac e-mail address ends in “@mac.com,” so using it is a good way to identify yourself as a Mac user. Using the Webmail service, you can also access your .Mac e-mail account from a Web browser.

    → To learn how to configure the Mail application to use your .Mac e-mail account, seeConfiguring E-Mail Accounts,” p. 302.

  • iCards These are electronic greeting cards you can send to others via e-mail. There are numerous card combinations you can send—these are great for the artistically challenged because you can create a customized greeting card by selecting from the available images and styles.

  • Software The .Mac service enables you to access specific software, such as Apple's Backup, Virex Anti-virus, and games.

  • iDisk The iDisk is a virtual disk space you can use to store files. There are a number of folders on an iDisk by default. For example, you can place items in your Public folder, and any Mac users who know your .Mac member name can access the files in that folder (which is an excellent way to share files with other Mac users around the world). And, you can create a Web site to share the files in your Public folder with anyone. You also store the data that forms your .Mac Web page on your iDisk.

  • HomePage The HomePage service enables you to create and serve a Web site.
