"We are aware of an issue that may have affected the delivery of messages sent to some .Mac Mail addresses. This has been resolved. Messages currently being sent to .Mac recipients are being delivered as expected. If you suspect that a message sent to you has not arrived, you may wish to have the originator resend it." - Chris, .Mac support
In response to requests for clarification of the exact problems, the representative noted:
"From 12:30pm to 4:00pm PST some portion of .Mac Mail was not received as expected. All mail services are currently operational. Messages sent to .Mac recipients are now being delivered in a timely fashion."
