More on .Mac update

By  Aug 9, 2007

Topics: Apple

Seeing as how I'm a happy subscriber of .Mac, I wanted to point out a few cool new additions Apple made to its online service this week.

(Victor Gavenda wrote a nice wrap-up of all the other Mac news from this week here.)

With iWeb ’08 and a .Mac membership, you can now publish iWeb-built sites directly to your own personal domain by having .Mac host your domain name.

You can add content from other places to your .Mac site through iWeb's Web Widgets, which lets you place a Google AdSense ad, Google map, or YouTube video, for example, on your iWeb page.

Apple also boosted the spam filtering on the Web mail portion of .Mac. You can now flag spam by turning on junk mail filtering in the Preferences section of .Mac Mail.

And you now get 10 gigabytes of room for e-mails and files, up from 1 gigabyte.
