    Ok, got my new iPhone last night. Synced my e-mail accounts from my MacBook Pro. No problems. or so I thought... :(

    I've got a MobileMe account with several e-mail only accounts (this was before the days of .Mac aliases...). On the iPhone, one of the e-mail only accounts shows up at the top of the accounts list, and is the ONLY account that gives me the option for "Push" e-mail. My primary account, listed second, only gives me "fetch" and "Manual"... :confused:

    I can't seem to re-order them on the phone. Do I need to re-order them in Mail.app on my MBP? Can I re-order them in iTunes?

    I just hope I can do that without blowing anything away...

    Ideas? Suggestions?

    Got it covered...

    It's to do with the MobileMe settings.

    In settings:mail,contacts, calendar, pick the account you want to be your MobileMe sync for Calendars & bookmarks. Slide the switches to "on". You'll get a note that it'll be switching to that account, and you may lose data. Wasn't an issue for me.

    THen over to Fetch New Data: Advanced, and here's where you can pick and choose. Mail, it seems can be push, fetch or manual, contacts & calendars push or manual only.
