    I currently have a MobileMe account with one email alias (so two addresses total.) It's obviously very easy to setup this configuration in Mail.app. I'm able to get Thunderbird to work fine with the main address but I can't figure out how to configure the alias. Google is failing me here. I also can't find anything about this in these forums. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    I don't believe you can do it in Thunderbird. In Apple Mail.app it works automatically after configure the aliases in www.me.com.

    Well, it's not *exactly* automatic with Mail.app. After you set it up on me.com you go to Mail.app Mail->Preferences->Accounts and in the Email Address field you just add each new alias with commas separating them. I've been told that Apple facilitates this on their back-end without any magic and using only standard protocols. One would assume then that it would be possible to configure this to work somehow in any compliant email client.
