    I am into my second year with my MobileMe family pack and since Push was introduced I have never ever had any email from my MobileMe accounts pushed to any of iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPod Touch 2G and this is the case with all users on my family account.

    Everything else pushes perfectly both ways and my mail even pushes outward so to speak, ie if I check my MobileMe email manually and read an email it instantly appears as read on my iMac which receives push email perfectly within seconds of someone sending one to me.

    I have been in constant contact with Apple regarding this problem and they have been keeping me up dated as best they can, however I received which seems a final update today stating the message below.

    "Thank you for your patience as we have been investigating your issue.

    Our engineers are still conducting an in-depth investigation into the root cause of the issue you have reported. Unfortunately, at this point there is no estimated time frame for a fix, as it appears that it will require a lot more engineering time. It may be an issue that is resolved in a future update to MobileMe or the iPhone OS. Apple won't contact you again about this issue unless we have questions about the information you provided."

    Anyone else having a problem like this?

    Do you mean when you get a new email it isn't being pushed immediately to your iphone or do you mean they are being pushed BUT when you mark them as read on other devices it doesn't update them as read on the iphone and still reads as an unread email (hope all that made sense). If it is the latter then I am also experiencing this, I posted about it on the forum a while ago and someone said thats how its supposed to be because it is using push rather than IMAP....if so it seems like a pretty stupid thing to have left out

    Not being pushed at all to my iPhone, not even using the fetch schedule, I have to always manually check for email but only on my MobileMe account, all other accounts work perfectly and push also and so does all of my MobileMe contacts, Bookmarks and iCal all pushed over the air.

    I don't have any problem with updating, as soon as I read an email on my iPhone it instantly is marked as read on my iMac.

    Mine pushes fine, but I got tired of it waking me up every hour during the night when the phone was beside my bed. Plus I realized I really didn't need to get my email every minute. I've since changed my settings to fetch manually.

    Mine didnt push for ages, then the Push seemed to resolve itself and begin working.

    Recently it has begun failing again. Alongside this I have a huge list of duplicate contacts building up.

    It's quite expensive mobile me isn't it. I think I'll stick to my googlemail account once the subscription is up, it might have it's own problems but at least I won't have to pay for them.
