    So this might have been discussed but since there's a new section I figure I'd start it up.

    Is there anyway to have Gmail pull your email and then automatically forward it to your MobileMe. Mobileme filtering it to a specific folder and then you got PUSH on any email account?

    Yes. Setup a filter in Gmail that the mail contains the text "in:inbox", have it skip the inbox (wierd I know). The forward is instant and then when it gets to me.com it'll push as expected...

    I've set it up with a combination of gmail and google hosted accounts and it's working fine.

    I understand that the OP is looking for a way to make the message arrive in a particular foler of MobileMe, which is not possible

    Yah totally. You can just use the smtp.me.com outgoing server on any of your account, in theory :p

    I'm sure at some point they will let you make filters on me.com then it can just handle the email sorting from different accounts.

    Is it really necessary to set up a filter? I did it just using the forwarding settings and then it allows you to archive the emails instead of going to the inbox.
