How to Reinstall MobileMe


Apple's MobileMe service consists of email, calendar, photo, Web hosting and online storage services. The MobileMe software can be set up on multiple computers and your mobile phone. Once MobileMe is installed, your email, contacts and calendars are constantly synched since new changes are pushed to each device. If you need to reinstall the utility, you will first need to install Apple's iTunes software.

  • Download the latest version of iTunes from Apple's iTunes page. The iTunes link is provided in the Resources section of this article. Save the file to your desktop.

  • Select the "Sync" tab and define your desired sync settings. You have the option of syncing your calendar, contacts, bookmarks. Each has a corresponding drop-down menu that allows you to select the default application each item is associated with (Outlook vs Windows Live Mail, Internet Explorer vs Safari).
