    What are my MobileMe member name and password?

    My TimeCapsule wants it for Back to My Mac - is this something that has
    been forgotten in the drift - I hestitate to call it anything ass
    co-ordinated as a migration - to iCloud?

    I now have an Apple ID, an iCloud login and a Mac.com ID (at least. No
    doubt there are others lurking around). I use the Mac.com ID for iChat.

    <https://www.icloud.com/> never seems to remember my login details,
    probably because my Keychain doesn't invite me to save them. Maybe this
    is the Keychain's fault, of course, not iCloud's. Maybe it's the world's
    fault.

    In Mail, Contacts & Calendars in System Preferences, I have:

    * an iCloud section
    * a MobileMe section, which confusingly has the Mac.com details
    that can't be used as the MobileMe credentials I need for Back
    to My Mac; in any case, it's the iCloud section above, not
    MobileMe, that has any options for Back to My Mac

    This is quite a mess. I suppose I should count myself lucky I don't have
    some iTools credentials making this soup even murkier.

    I have ended up with the two I previously had except my
    ..mac/mobile.me/iCloud login is now the complete email address, where it
    was just the bit before @. I had to change the password though.
    Apparently my previous one wasn't tough enough.
    My login for ITMS and my Apple ID remains the same and has never been
    the same as .mac.

    Not as far as Time Capsule is concerned; there it has to end with
    "@me.com"
