    I swear I had found an article the other day on how to set mx record settings for a personal domain so that email would go to a mobileme account, but for the life of me I cannot find it.

    Anyway, what I want to do is take my personal domain and set the mx record so that email will go to mobileme vs. my home Exchange server. I don't want to pull email with mobile me, I need any email sent from any server to go directly to mobileme.

    I'm pretty sure this was enabled but I just can't find a site that has the details on how. Apple's discussion area is closed today - thats probably where I saw it... but I thought I'd ask here.

    Not sure you can do this. However, you should be able to easily FORWARD all of your mail (keep/no keep a copy) to MobileMe Email Address.

    Yea, I want to avoid (it possible) the middle man and go direct. Had an internet outage the other day that took my home link down for too long and wanted to re-direct to mobileme.
