Hoping for some input from anyone who has already made the transition from MobileMe to iCloud.
It all looks pretty good but I'm concerned about email. It seems that you can no longer use 'From' addresses belonging to other accounts you own. This is a nightmare for me as I do associate work for a number of organisations and I need my emails to appear to come from those companies.
Any input, ideas or recommendations for alternative OS X and IOS email clients (not web based, e.g. Gmail)

I have made the transition, but am not 100% sure what you mean. I have number of accounts setup on both iOS devices and on my iMac. I also have a number of aliases on my old MobileMe account which still work under iCloud.
When I am composing mail I can select any of these email addresses to send from (as long as that account is setup on that device)
I have the following accounts setup
iCloud (formerly MobileMe) Gmail hotmail my work exchange email account - this one is only on my iOS devices.
Sounds Like it's OK in your experience. This is the quote from the Take Control of iCloud ebook "And iCloud Mail actually loses a few features from MobileMe Mail—you can no longer get mail from external POP accounts, check your iCloud Mail with a POP client, or use From addresses belonging to other accounts you own; and the previous limit of five aliases has dropped to three."
I'm really not sure which features were part of MobileMe and which part of Mail app. I've just realised the bigger problem for us with iCloud is the 'need' to upgrade the iPhone 3g my wife is using since it doesn't support iOS 5!

Will Green: I'm really looking forward to iOS 13, at the moment the iPad hardware is way ahead of the OS. My MacBook Pro was accidentally broken, so when going on business or interviews I take my iPad. The files app seems very clumsy as it is.

Will Green: So I'm looking forward to seeing what iOS 13 has to offer.
