    If you have .mac for home use and you use microsoft exchange for work can you have both (with push facility) on one phone?

    I hope they make it easier to switch between two different mail accounts. Currently it takes about 5 taps of the screen.

    As others have said, yes you can. A unified unbox would be nice but don't hold your breath...

    A unified inbox would be awesome, or atleast the ability to add a second icon to the homescreen for another mail account.

    Ofcourse you can... but they will appear as two separate accounts...

    Here's the stupid bit.. All your Exchange contacts will be on your iPhone and these will all get synced to mobileme.. so will your calendar etc etc.

    You can choose which account you want your contacts/events to come from.

    Think you might be mistaken about that - MobileMe contacts and Calendar events are kept separate and can be displayed unified or not. However, if you have Entourage set to sync to Calendar and AddressBook, and then you have iSync syncing those to .Mac (MobileMe), you're going to get in a bit of a mess...
