My work email is my real appleID. I had a me account that I used for email forwarding, calendar, address book. I tried having 2 for about 30 minutes today and hated it. So I let iCloud set up a new one for me (thank God it's not horrible) and then I migrated everything off the old one to the new one. Took a few hours, but the mail app on my laptop helped. So now I have an appleID with a me.com email address inside of it.
