Sending from MobileMe, as Gmail?

    I've set up MobileMe to receive my Gmail, but is it possible to reply with MobileMe (via iPhone) as my Gmail address?

    ie. Gmail receives Email A > Gmail forwards Email A to MobileMe > User replies to Email A with Email B from MobileMe > Original sender receives Email B reply from Gmail address, sent from MobileMe.

    I feel like I horribly over-complicated that...

    Yeah, I do this. Just set your OUTGOING server to gmail's information instead of mobileme. All of my emails appear to come from gmail.

    Ungrateful, do the emails then appear in your gmail sent folder, mm sent folder, or both?

    I do exactly this on my iPhone...receive mail on my MobileMe account, and send from my Gmail account. My Gmail account is also set to forward e-mail to MobileMe (since MobileMe receives via Push on the iPhone.

    However, I have not been successful for some reason in setting up my iPad in the same exact manner. I tried a couple of times and I keep getting an error message popping up when I try to send. Anyone else have this issue on an iPad?
