How do I set Mobile Me settings correctly so it pushes mail evenly across 3 devices?

    Perhaps I am having problems since it is reported that MobileMe
    may be down.

    I have a desktop, notebook and iPhone (all Mac)

    Always thought the desktop was the MASTER. So, on my laptop
    I told MobileMe to REPLACE all the data (instead of merge).

    Now email I am receiving on one device is not pushing to another.

    Should I have selected MERGE instead? I kind of thought doing
    that would double the information since I ma merging info. from
    one device to another.

    Thanks for your help.

    Think of MobileMe as the Master. Once you have that setup properly then Sync/Push everything else from that.

    I appreciate that information, but my question still is unanswered.

    Do I select MERGE or REPLACE data in my sync settings?

    Suddenly MM is not pushing email or data across my devices.

    Is it down?

    I think MM just did an update so maybe thinks have been slow for that reason.

    When I setup MM I had to do a few things to get my stuff on the MM "Cloud". After that I just "replaced" the data on all my other devices with what was on MM. Again, very important that MM has all of the correct data. Also, I have heard that if you removed MM from your iPhone and then added it back (replacing contents of iPhone) then things start working better after that. I have not needed to do that except when I replace my phone. At that time it was really nice to just add MM to my phone and download all of my information.
