    Yes, I've read the big guide post already, didn't really follow it all.

    Ok, I tried forwarding my main (primary) gmail account to MobileMe so that I can have everything push down from my address now. This appears to only push occassionally, wheras emails directly to seem to push ok.

    Should I:

    1. Just tell everyone to start using my @mac address and give up on forwarding.
    2. If not, please help me with the optimal setup which will allow me to utilize MobileMe push (when its working) and forwards from gmail. Setting gmail account to simply forward to in settings doesn't seem reliable, so I was wondering if there was anything else I could do.

    I'm not sure, I've been running some tests with the forwarding setup in gmail. Some of the forwards come through right away, push down instantly (within 1 minute). Then they just seem to stop - i.e. don't push down, and only display if i manually check. Example, I sent 5 emails from a third account to the gmail account with forwarding turn on to test above. All emails were sent one minute apart. 2 were pushed down, next 3 never came. I know they came through to @me because when I finally did manually check all the time-stamps were correct, they arrived, they just weren't pushed.

    it could be gmail's servers. they can be a little wonky at times.
