I logged into iCloud with an old Apple ID (email@example.com) because I was hoping I could use that old email address with iCloud. However, it told me I had to create a new @me.com email address in the iCloud setup tool so I did (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The thing is, my preferred Apple ID is actually different (email@example.com), that's the Apple ID I've been buying iTunes music with for years, so I want to keep using it for iCloud too.
So I logged out of iCloud, and logged in with the "correct" Apple ID firstname.lastname@example.org
Then I went to configure Mail for iCloud to use my newly created email@example.com, but it's prompting me to create a "new" @me.com email. It won't let me use the firstname.lastname@example.org that I just created under the email@example.com Apple ID. :(
Since I already have and like firstname.lastname@example.org, I want to use that one, but it won't let me. It insists on creating a new @me.com
Is there any way to associate the newly created email@example.com email address with a different Apple ID than the one I created it with? Or am I stuck creating yet another @me.com email address?
