I have just migrated to ICloud and does anyone feel that this email service is just not as user friendly as Mail, it appears that it is all based around the iphone and does not offer the clear options that are available in Mail. I maybe behind the times but i have used Mail for years and find it one of the best layouts and system available, its a shame it has to go when ICloud fully takes over

Mail is an application, iCloud is a service -- Using Mail with iCloud vs. another mail service/account shouldn't make that much of a difference (beyond those of IMAP vs. POP, etc.) ...

What six said. iCloud syncs your mail with all of your devices. If you send/receive an email on your Mac at home, it will also appear on your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and vice versa. You do not have to use the web interface at all if you don't need to (like if I were away from any of my devices and needed to access it from a family member's/friend's computer Note: I still don't have any iDevices, just my home Mac.).
