    I have push working on all fronts (one of the lucky ones), but I've got a few ideas of what I'd love to see mobile me have....please add your ideas.

    1) CONTACTS - be able to make groups visible to other people in your family - that way you can share contacts inside your family plan.
    2) CALENDAR - same request for calendar - you can already do it on google calendars. my wife schedules things on my calendar, and v.v.

    I've tried this and it doesn't work..

    i have a domain name i own, set up forwarding from an email address to forward to (fake addresses obviously)

    i've set up a filter in mail for mail sent to to go into a folder named - Bloggs.

    Works fine on the 2 computers it is set up on, however, if Mail isn't open on the computers, the email just goes into the main inbox.. which is crap!

    Visual Voicemail


    iDisk-App on the iPhone

    Personal Domain to port over any personal email address-Google does this already...

    iWeb-Blog app on the iPhone

    It does this because on the side there is no filtering done by Mail, the filtering happens when it hits your client and it then moves it to the appropriate folder. This then syncs back to MobileMe.

    I noticed this yesterday too...

    but surely if they can do it on Mail Client side, they could easily incorporate it into the mobileme side of it all...

    I think this is really one of the HUGE missing features.. means i could forward my 2 or 3 email addresses i have, into one huge inbox, and actually have it relatively organized

    Actual Push from the desktop to the cloud, which is not a current feature.:mad:

    But while on the topic, iPhoto Synching.

    I would like to see MobileMe send email alerts from its server instead of requiring a user to have a desktop computer left on at home. This would save a lot of energy for those of us who want meeting reminders emailed to our cell phones.

    I use Outlook at work, and the mail does not filter out of the inbox until I log into the client (my Laptop). At that time everything moves out of the inbox and into the folders they were filtered to. If I log into the Web version of my work email, it does not filter them. Only on the client.
    Do you have your mobileme syncing set to automatic in preferences, or check email every 15 minutes... on the client?

    Chandler Hub subscribed calendars

    I sent them a request through mobile me support to support subscribed calendars. I have 7 calendars that sync fine in iCal, and on my iPhone, but don't show up (push) in mobile me. I have to download the ics file and then add to ical, and then the static copy will show up, but nothing pushed.
    My relatives don't use Mac's yet, so the Chandler Hub web calendar works great for all of us, and the subscribed calendar is where I keep my up to date information, else I have to keep 2 personal calendars up to date.

    I want to be able to save my iWork docs to a folder on the iDisk, and then be able to edit them through the web portal. I personally don't need to be able to access them through my iPod touch (or an iPhone), but that would be a bonus and I know some people would find that really useful.

    This feature alone would be enough to make me buy iWork. And reduce the cognitive dissonance of renewing dotMacMe every year.

    right, and especially share files via email link!

    especially since this was advertised. i suspect this isnt there because the whole app isnt working and this would beat the servers down even more. its just not nice to kick a server when its down.

    The Filtering sounds a very good idea.

    I also need a 'send from' option. So that when I send from, it can look like (and ideally the user will reply to) it has come from another address.

    ie I can send an e-mail from mobile me as ''
