    I am trying to connect to my dotmac account. I used "" as the host name (not sure if this is correct?) and my other information is correct, I believe.

    It will not connect. I am 100% sure it is new user error.

    I have read the Fetch help and the pdf. I have searched the globe for a "how to connect to dotmac with Fetch" tutorial.

    I found this forum. Thank goodness.

    Is there a step-by-step on how to connect to dotmac for a very thick newbie?

    We're sorry, but Fetch does not support connecting to .Mac accounts.

    Fetch only support making connects to servers that support FTP or SFTP connections. .Mac uses a different protocol called WebDAV.

    One way to connect to your .Mac account is to use the iDisk feature in the Macintosh Finder.

    Sorry not to have a better answer for you.

    Bummer. I did not know that. I did not even know what WebDav meant.

    Thanks for giving me the answer.
