mac.com email account setup - just use me.com

My Z10 wouldnt recognise and set up my mac.com email until I realised that these days iCloud uses me.com and my mac.com email address is a hangover to the past. Once I entered the details using me.com it just worked and my email started to show up in the hub. Now all I need is calendars and contacts but it looks like thats a known issue at the moment. 


Great start though.
