    I've configured icloud on my iOS devices and Macs...

    Me: iPhone 4s
    Wife: iPhone 4s
    Family: iPad2
    Family: Mac Mini
    Family: Apple TV2
    Me: Macbook Air

    I've got an icloud account configured as the primary account across all the devices for:

    • Photo Stream
    • Documents & Data
    • Find my iPhone/Mac
    • Back to My Mac

    This enables to share photos & documents easily across devices automatically. And I can find/connect to my devices from one account.

    My wife and I both have our own MobileMe accounts which have been migrated to icloud. These are added uniquely to our own devices and configured for:

    • Mail
    • Contacts
    • Calendar
    • Reminders
    • Bookmarks
    • Notes

    However, when I add my migrated personal mobileme account to my Mac Mini or Macbook Air (which are both running Lion 10.7.2 and up to date) under "Mail, Contact & Calendars" I only get the option to sync the following:

    • Mail & Notes
    • Contacts
    • Calendars

    There is no sync bookmark option!
    Previously with our mobileme accounts (before migration and above setup), we would set bookmarks and reading lists and they would be in sync.

    Has anyone come across this issue?

    Personal Bookmark/Reading List sync is a big thing for us - we do not want them merged or shared between our accounts.

    Any ideas/help appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Is it listed under the iCloud preference pane in System Preferences?

    Yes for the primary icloud account on the Macs it is listed, but I have enabled it as I don't want bookmarks shared across all the devices for different users.

    It's odd, that the iphone has the option for secondary accounts but Lion preferences doesn't.
